Episode 8: Anla Cheng

Our episode today features Anla Cheng, Founder and CEO of SupChina – the premier digital news platform about China which aims to inform and educate an English speaking audience. What struck me about Anla is that she has such an incredible poise and presence, certainly acquired from much wisdom in both finance and journalism. We really dig into the importance of portraying China genuinely through the media, what it means to break through the “bamboo ceiling”, and how resilience and courage key to a sustainable career.

Ta for Ta is a new biweekly podcast, which captures the narratives of women from Greater China at the top of their professional game. “Ta for Ta” is a play on the Chinese spoken language that demonstrates equality between the sexes. Tā 他 is the word for “he”; tā 她 is also the word for “she.”
