Tell us why you decided to pursue motion design.
I wanted to upgrade my skills after attaining a diploma in graphic design, so I decided to take a one-year motion and graphic design course at a media school as it felt like the natural next step for me.

It’s been a year since you finished school. What has been the toughest part about your transition to the working life?
When I first started work as a fresh graduate, I naively agreed to work overtime for free as I was made to think that my contributions were for a greater good. Many companies also sell the idea of a family-like workplace culture, which can be very toxic. It hasn’t been easy, but I’ve learnt the hard way to be my own advocate and to fight for my worth.

What does success look like to you?
My idea of success shifts according to my current priorities. At the moment, I think success is achieving financial stability and having enough time for myself and my loved ones.

Is there anything you’re working towards this year?
I’m hoping to keep trying new things, be open to new perspectives and experiences, and to step out of my comfort zone even more this year.

How do you like to spend your free time?
When I’m not at work, I like chatting with my friends about mindless and nonsensical topics and taking care of my half-dead plants.

I also often find myself pondering about what I want to do when I’m 80 years old and retired (laughs).

We hear that you’re a big fan of noodles! What is your all-time favourite noodle dish?
I really love noodles! I even did a whole explorational project on noodles in my final year of design school.

I can’t choose a favourite dish, but if I really have to pick one, it’d have to be some variant of instant noodles. I love discovering new flavours and all I can say is that I’m thankful I still have a head full of hair—for now! (laughs)
