ABOUT ME

Canoeing has been a part of my identity since 2005, when I first started paddling under Anglo-Chinese School (Independent). I was never fond of the arduous trainings, but the thrill of racing always kept my fire burning throughout every taxing session on and off the water. Quite simply, I am addicted to the adrenaline that comes with the fast paced sprint races. Every second that I spend during training is a quest for perfection in a sport as technical as canoeing, where the most miniscule mistakes can define the winner and the first loser.

Boats and paddles aside, a sketchbook and the pencil is my best weapon. I am an aspiring designer pursuing an Art, Design, and Media degree from the Nanyang Technological University. It will be difficult to balance my commitments as a student athlete, but I will always persevere and demand the best of myself in every situation.
