Chinese Zodiacs in the Year of the Rat (Part I)

We know that the Year of the Rat is the first of the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac animals. Rats symbolize wealth and surplus, and those born in the year of the rat are likeable, independent, and optimistic. But how do the other 11 Chinese zodiac animals behave under the rat?

Carol Liu
Carol’s look may be minimalist, and her favorite clothing lines known for simplicity, but she works her role as Marketing Coordinator to the maximum and with her super-power energy. Organized and button down, Carol rolls up those chic sleeves and gets it done. Throw in a journalism background to keep it real, and a great quick smile to deliver the spin. Which reminds us, she’s fast too. Must be all that running.
