PROFILE: KELLY DÍAZ (中文)

大约5年前,在我正努力想找个新的爱好,足球时,我遇见了她,来自哥伦比亚的Kelly,她是我见过的最勇敢的人之一,来中国的时候,只会说西班牙语,除了心中的一团热血,梦想,其余什么也没有。但几年后,她不仅会说英语,中文,还自己开了一个培训中心。她的事迹告诉我们,只要你有激情,有奉献精神,坚持不懈,有毅力,有头脑,梦想是一定可以实现的!

我很高兴能以Kelly Díaz的故事来开始我们人物专栏这一板块!

WechatIMG1912.png

Kelly Díaz来自哥伦比亚,体育教育学士,早教专家,2011年6月8号抵达中国

“是中国教会了我无论我们多么不同,爱能战胜一切! 我后来发现,如果你真心地热爱你的工作,你的生活,以及你身边的每一个人,你会做很多很多你从没想过要做的事。

    我知道了梦想是可以实现的,明白了友谊可贵,时光可贵,我也懂得了,世界各地,不管到哪里,你都能找到一些人,愿意和你分享一些他们的世界!但最重要的是,我学会了理解和尊重所有的不同!

    最后,还要感谢所有花时间精力来展现我们拉拉群体真实生活的人。我们就像其他人一样,在清晨醒来,努力工作,为梦想打拼,更重要的是,我们带着一个更加美好的世界的愿景,积极进取!” Kelly Díaz

 

请问你的第一份工作是什么?为什么来中国呢?

我来中国是因为我在哥伦比亚工作的那个儿童培训中心,他们在中国设了一个总部,我作为这个地区的老师的负责人来到这里,为孩子们制定运动发展计划。我和他们一起工作了4年,直到公司决定关门,然后我也相继失业了。2016年3月,我和我的两个伙伴决定开始给一些已经认识我们的孩子和想继续参加培训的妈妈们上一些私人课程。于是GogoKids开始在深圳湾和福田的一些公园上课。红树林西区的一位妈妈还帮我们预订了一个篮球场,所以我们可以每周在那里教三天课,在这位妈妈的帮助下,我们建了一个微信群,找到了更多的学生,就这样,我们每天上3节课,每个班10个孩子。直到几个月后,他们把场地租给其他人,我们就没法继续在那里上课了。之后,在我们学生母亲们的鼓励下,我们决定找个我们自己的地方,当时,我们的中国这边的合伙人决定向他的家人借钱,于是我们开始找合适的学习地点。后来,我们班一个学生的父母找到我们,提出与我们合作,他们当时大约有5个为成人准备的健身房,说正在找合适的人选做儿童项目,刚开始开了第一个会的时候,我们决定不与任何人合作,只是在他们的地方开始上课。但后来,跟他们一起工作改变了我们的看法,我们最终才决定与他们合作。然后在2016年9月份,我们在华侨城的阁楼成立了GogoKids。

 

 从刚来到现在,什么一直是你在中国生活的最大的困难呢?

刚来的时候,交流是最大的障碍,现在有时也是。刚到中国的时候,我英语都不怎么会说,就别提中文了。所以那个时候我决定在网上学英语,事实上,我现在所会的英语也基本上都是那个时候学的。那个时候因为时间不够,我也开始在网上学中文。在开办了Gogokids后,我就去大学里学了,现在已经学了一年了。所以我觉得,最大的障碍是交流吧。对于而言,一方面,跟中国父母的沟通非常重要,因为只有通过父母你才能更好地去了解这些孩子,另一方面,因为交流很困难,所以生活上很多事像去医院看病都需要找人帮忙。

  你为什么会想在中国建立自己的儿童认知发展中心呢?

恩… 有这么几个原因吧。首先是在这四年的工作期间,我发现在孩子的脑部发育过程中,早期的刺激是非常重要的。然后,在中国工作这么长时间让我了解到,在中国创业不会像在我们自己国家那么难,如同你有一个好主意,好产品的话,中国人会对你很感兴趣,并愿意投资你的想法和创意。

WechatIMG1913.jpeg

你能给我们简单介绍一下Gogokids是干什么的吗?然后它成立多长时间了呢?

Gogokids在租的地方上了大概两年课,然后在我们自己的工作室上了一年多两个月的课了。

  你在中国开办儿童培训中心最难的事是什么呢?

嗯…目前来说,最困难的事是要在保证课堂质量的基础上建立一个良好的团队来帮助我们更快地成长,尽管中国人口很多,但是要找一批很懂人口学的老师来教一群这么小的孩子并不容易。

 在中国做一名企业家你最好或者你认为最好的经历是什么?

最好的经历是我们受到许许多多中国家长的支持和帮助。他们愿意学习,也接受引导。在中国父母,合作伙伴的帮助下,人们很喜欢我们的课堂,孩子们很开心,并且是边玩边学。

人们尊重你的工作,并且重视你为深圳新一代的教育所作出的努力。并且看到自己的想法被付诸实践,成长,并且获得人们的喜爱,我觉得这就是上帝的一种奖赏,并且看到这个品牌一步步壮大,被接纳,我很满足了!

 你一天上多少节课?

一般是上午我自己去大学里读书,下午的话我给孩子们上两到三节课。

大家怎么预定课程呢?

我们在微信上有一个系统,妈妈们可以在那上面预定。

  LGBT+这个群体的身份给你的工作带来了什么困难吗?WechatIMG1828.jpeg

实际上没有,绝大多数妈妈都知道我有女朋友,她们都觉得很正常。我知道在这里,如果你没有直接影响到他们的生活,人们也不会说什么。恰恰与很多人的认知相反,我觉得,中国人在对LGBT+这个群体的态度上,比我们国家的很多人都要更开放。

10我们知道现在你正在热恋期,并且你们很快要当妈妈了,能稍微给我们透露一些这方面的信息吗?

嗯…我跟Cissy交往了一年两个多月了,她是深圳本地人,我们2016年在著名的拉拉交友APP: L上认识。在互相了解认识了几个月后,我们就决定开始交往。但是第一天Cissy就很清楚地告诉我她计划2017年要坏一个宝宝。她说不管和没和我在了一起,那都是她自己的计划,而且我也没有想过反对她,实际上,我觉得我人生的这个阶段会很有意思。之后,我也决定加入她怀宝宝的计划当中,我们于是开始到处打听,最后找到了美国一家医院,她可以在那做试管受精。我们也通过医院寻求捐精者。整个过程简直就像是买旅行的机票。你可以决定像,孩子的眼睛,头发的颜色,他们说的语言,宗教,品味以及你能想到的所有。第一次我们是通过Skype联系的医生,我们告诉他,我们是一对拉拉夫妇,然后医生介绍了整个过程的利弊,开始的时间,以及整个过程的时间安排。

在克服了诸多不便后,她自己一个人去了两趟美国,因为我没有签证,而且工作原因,没有时间陪她过去。然后在七月份成功植入胚珠,你可能没有想到,由于没有看到什么的风险增长,我们最终决定植入两个胚珠。所以,现在马上要迎来一对双胞胎啦!

事实上,整个过程下来没有那么艰难,我们双方的家人,美国的医生,我的同事他们都知道我俩的关系。所以根本没有什么好隐瞒的。然后Cissy是一个超级女强人,她自己一个人去美国承担这一切,自己申请了三个月的每日两次的注射,做了成百上千次的测试。而且她还是一个成功的企业家,有一个自己的广告公司要打理。

我们一年前就住在了一起,并且这样生活一直都很棒!我们一起承担一切,所有的费用,所有的工作,清洁等等。然后我做饭,她洗碗。我们就是一个再普通不过的家庭,等着这两个小女孩来快点改变我们的生活啦!

Profile: Kelly Díaz

It was almost five years ago that while trying to find a new hobby, soccer, I ended up meeting one of the bravest people: a Colombian girl that arrived to China speaking only Spanish and big dreams In her, years later she does not only speak English and Chinese but has opened her own training center. She is a person that teaches us that dreams can come true if you have passion, dedication, perseverance, will, and brains.

To start this project about Profiles, I am glad to start with Kelly Díaz.

 

WechatIMG1912.png

kelly Díaz from Colombia, Bachelor of Physical Education Education; specialist in early education, arrived to China on June 8, 2011.

“China was the place that taught me that despite the difference love can do everything, I learned that if you really feel love, for people, for your work, for your life and for others you will do everything you never imagined doing .

I learned that dreams are fulfilled, I learned the value of a friendship, the value of time, I also learned that you can find people from all over the world who left a little of their world in you, but above all, learned to respect and understand the difference .

Finally also thank all the people who are putting some of their time to show the real part of life of many lalas that like the rest of the people, we wake up in the morning to work hard, we have dreams and we fight for them and above all that we are enterprising and with a vision of a better world ”   Kelly Díaz

What was your first job or why did you arrive in China?

I came to China because I was working in Colombia for a training center for children that opened a Chinese headquarters. I arrived here as the head of the teachers in the area, and to develop the motor development program for the children. I worked with them for 4 years until the company decided to close and I was out of work. In March 2016, my two partners and I decided to start giving some private classes with some of the children that already knew us, and the moms who wanted to follow the training process. So GogoKids began giving classes in Shenzhen Bay, and in some parks in Futian. A mom in the Mangrove West area also helped us to reserve a basketball court where we began teaching three days a week. With this mom’s help, we formed a group in wechat, found more students, and so on until we managed to have three classes per day each with 10 children. After spending a few months there in that field, they rented the space to other people so we couldn’t continue to hold classes there. Then, with the encouragement of the mothers of our students, we decided that we had to find our own site. At that time our Chinese partner decided to borrow money from his family and we started the search for a suitable site for the classes. In that course of time in one of our classes the parents of one of our students approached us to offer to start a cooperation with us: they had in that moment about 5 gyms for adults and they told us that they were looking for the

right people to start a children’s program. We decided in our first meeting that we were not going to do any cooperation with anyone, but that we would start doing classes in their spaces. Spending time working with them changed our opinion and we decided to cooperate with them. In september 2016 we opened GogoKids in OCT Loft.

What was and still is your biggest difficulty being in China?

At the beginning and sometimes still the biggest difficulty is communication. When I arrived in China I had not spoken English and much less Chinese – I decided to study English online and practically all the English I know now I learned in that way here in China, and I started studying Chinese also by internet for lack of time, but when I started with GogoKids I decided to enter the university and I’ve been studying for a year. So I think the most difficult thing is communication: In my case communication with Chinese parents is very important because through parents you can get to know children, and on the other hand I can not communicate for myself and must depend on someone else to help me with some things such as going to a hospital.

What is the reason for founding your own center for psychomotor (cognitive) development of children in China?

Oof! Well there are many reasons. First during the 4 years that I worked for them I realized the importance of early stimulation in the brain development of children. Second, spending so much time here in China made me realize that undertaking something here is not as difficult as in our countries, the Chinese are interested in you if they know you have a good product they do not mind investing in your idea.

WechatIMG1913

Could you give us a brief of what GogoKids does? and How long has the GoGoKids center been open?

GGK has been around for two years giving classes at rented sites and one year and two months in their own studio in Oct loft.

What is the hardest thing about having a training center for children in China?

Well the hardest thing so far is to make a good work group of help us grow faster while maintaining the quality standards of the class. Although China has such a large population, it is not easy to find teachers for children so young that have a good level of knowledge about the demographic.

 

What is or do you consider your best experience in China as an entrepreneur?

The best thing has been the support I have received from the Chinese parents. They are willing to learn and be guided, with the help of all the collaboration we have received from our Chinese partners, the people like our classes, the children are happy, and they learn through playing.

People respect your work and value the effort you make in education of new generations in Shenzhen.

Also the possibility of starting your own business with your ideas and seeing that it works and that they like is rewarding; that every day the brand becomes stronger and more recognized.

How many classes per day?

In the morning I go to the university and in the after I have two three classes a day.

Where or how can people make booking for classes?

We have a system through wechat where moms can reserve the class.

Has there been any difficulty for you to be of the LGBT + community in your work?

The truth is no difficulty, most moms know my relationship and take it as normal, I learned that here if people do not directly affect you they try not to get involved. Contrary to what is said a lot [about China,] I consider that they are much more open about the subject than many people in our countries.

WechatIMG1828

We know that at this moment you have a relationship and you will be close to being moms, could you tell us a bit about it?

Well, I have a one year and 2 month relationship with Cissy, a chinese woman of shenzhen. We met in 2016 by means of a well-known lesbian application called the L. After a few months of talking we decided to start a relationship, but from the first day Cissy was super clear and she told me that she had plans to become pregnant in 2017.
She told me that with me or without me those were her plans and I did not think to change them, which to be honest I liked because I thought it could be interesting in this stage of my life.

Then we decided that I would be included in her plans to have a baby. We started to make inquiries and found a hospital in the United States where she could do IVF, and we also sought a donor through the hospital. This process was literally like buying a travel ticket: you make filters – color of eyes, hair, offspring, languages they speak, religion, tastes and whatever else you can imagine! The first appointment with the doctor was via skype, where we introduced ourselves as a couple the doctor explained the whole procedure pros and cons, dates of travel, and a schedule of how the process would be.

After many inconveniences, two trips to the United States alone, because I do not have a visa and my work here did not give me the time to accompany my partner, on July 2017 the ovule was implanted. Well for that moment you would

have thought of only one, but the risk of it not growing got us to thinking and we decided to put two eggs. Now twins are on their way!

The truth has not been so difficult this whole process, our families know that we are a couple, doctors here and in the United States also know it. My partner’s work and my work also know it, so it is not something that we have to hide, first

that. My partner is a super powerful woman, she had to spend all this process alone in the united states, applying by herself two daily injections for almost three months, doing thousands of tests over and over again, she is also a super entrepreneur and has her own advertising company.

We lived together a year ago and the coexistence has been the best. We collaborate with everything in the house for mita d, expenses, cleaning, well I cook and she washes, we are what anyone would call a normal family.

Waiting for these two girls who came very soon to change our lives.
