Tell us about yourself—what do you do?
I work as a content producer at a travel company, where I help with creating videos and articles. I just graduated from polytechnic last year, where I studied creative writing for TV and media. I didn’t want to pursue further studies so soon, so I decided to look for work, and I managed to get a job here.
How do you find your experience so far?
It’s very fun, because it’s in a startup environment, which pushes you to learn and grow a lot. I find that I also like working in a small team, because you develop closer relationships with your colleagues.
Are there any places you’d like to travel to?
Venice; it’s definitely on my bucket list. It’s always seemed cool to me, and the fact that it’s slowly sinking and time is running out makes me want to go all the more. I like the idea of going somewhere that isn’t as modern, and having the opportunity to disconnect from the present.
What’s an experience you’d like to have?
I’ve gone bungee jumping before, and it’s a thrill I’m addicted to now. I’d like to try bungee jumping from the Macau Tower; it’s a drop of over 200 metres. I’m not really a sporty person, but I like the adrenaline rush that comes from such activities.
What are some TV series you like?
I like Korean dramas, comedy shows, and crime documentaries. I wanted to be a police officer when I was younger, but I realised that wasn’t an easy line of work to get into, and I was scared of blood, so now I just live out my dreams through crime shows. (laughs) I think it’s interesting to learn about how they solve cases.
Best advice I’ve ever received:
Sometimes, in order to learn, you have to fail. Growing up in an Asian society, we tend to think of failure as something to be avoided, but sometimes you have to fail to learn, because if you don’t learn the hard way, you’re not learning at all.
