We’re kicking things off with Crystal Lee, Little Soya’s VP of Global Accounts & Marketing. Crystal has been with the company since 2011, and she has played an integral role in helping Little Soya grow to become one of the most requested gluten-free soy sauces in the world. You can follow her on Twitter @crystalleester.

So, let’s get to it already. Here are 7 Questions with Crystal Lee!

Sweet, Angelic, Innocent. Okay not really… Let’s go with Alpha, Xenophile and Animated
