I am trying to get the custom session data of Customer in a javascript file. As I am passing 'Magento_Customer/js/customer-data' as dependency in order to retrieve the data.

function (Component,customerData) {
    'use strict';

    return Component.extend({
        defaults: {
            template: 'Mymodule_Company/myTemplate'
        initialize : function(){

I want to get a custom variable just like i set up in my php file :

$this->customerSession->setMyCustomValue("my custom variable");
