Tell us about your field of study. Why did you decide on this course?
I did Visual Communications at the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) and I’m now in my first year studying Graphic Communications at Nanyang School of the Arts (NAFA). I’d say design is the only thing I can do and enjoy doing.
How do you like to spend alone time?
I like to put some music on and cook at home by myself.
I got my love of cooking from my mum. On special occasions, she’d make my favourite dishes like chicken curry and seafood buckets, and we enjoy coming together as a family for a meal.
She actually passed on her chicken curry recipe to me, but I failed the one time I tried to cook it (laughs). It tasted so off to me, but my mum tried to be nice about it and fixed it for me in the end!
How else does your mum inspire you?
I really look up to her because she’s a single mother who works really hard to make my younger sister and I happy. When I grow up, I want to make her happy and proud too.
What’s your favourite food?
I love Wingstop! My go-to flavours are garlic parmesan and lemon pepper—it’s so delicious!
As for desserts, I love classic chocolate chip cookies, especially the chewy kind with ice cream on top! In fact, I want to start a small baking business in the future.
A piece of advice I live by is—
To not be afraid to try something new or to step out of your comfort zone. It’s scary, of course, but you might actually love it; don’t live with the regret of not trying and not knowing.
Is there anything you’re hoping to pick up in the new year?
I want to start a new hobby, maybe crocheting. I see others do it and it looks so calming, so I want to see if I have the patience for it (laughs).
