Evelyn Fernandez

Collaborator, Not Grey: Intimacy, Ageing & Being

Evelyn, 64, is Catholic Eurasian. At 19, she left Singapore for a brief stint as an au pair (nanny) in Germany. She ended up staying for forty years, during which she married a German man, had two sons and became a single mum after 10 years of marriage. Evelyn then returned to Singapore and became legal guardian to her infant grandniece, who is now 12. Her sons and ward are her everything. Having lived in two different worlds, she has built more intimacy with Germany.

Evelyn's hobbies are reading, listening to classical music, and going to the theatre especially to watch ballet.
