Anita Moorjani, author of Dying to Be Me and What if This Is Heaven?, had worked in the corporate world for many years before being diagnosed with cancer in 2002. Her near-death experience in 2006 profoundly changed her perspective on life, and provided her with the insights she now shares with others at conferences and events worldwide.
Born in Singapore of Indian parents, Moorjani moved to Hong Kong at the age of two, and has lived there most of her life. Because of her background and a British education, she is multilingual and grew up speaking English, Cantonese, and an Indian dialect simultaneously; she later learned French at school.
As a result of her near-death experience, Anita is often invited to speak at conferences and events around the globe to share her insights. She is also a frequent guest at the University of Hong Kong’s department of behavioral sciences, speaking on topics such as dealing with terminal illness, facing death, and the psychology of spiritual beliefs.
When she’s not traveling and speaking at conferences, Anita Moorjani works as an intercultural consultant for multinational corporations based in Hong Kong.
