Strength

She is meticulous, positive, inquisitive and adventurous. She likes to challenge herself by venturing to do things she never did before, as daunting as it may seem. She likes to tell herself "If it scares you, do it." An example would be how she is an introvert and doesn't like talking to strangers, but she wanted to open up more and be less shy. What she did was she went ahead to get a part-time job as a barista; the job in which there is ample customer interaction and is a tough job overall. In the one year she was working, she saw herself grow to be more open and learned so many things, even though it may have been tough and she was on the verge of giving up countless times, she pushed forth and almost became a new person with my newly found confidence to talk to strangers and of course, learning how to work swiftly, multi-task and handle sticky situations.

Interests

After being a barista for a year, she found her new hobby. Making coffee/drinks. Below the quiet girl everyone sees her as, they would never think she loves being a barista. Making pretty coffee made her happy, and seeing the regular customers and chatting with them warmed her heart. She enjoys cooking, baking and making drinks. She does not dedicate a lot of time to it, but when she does it, she thoroughly enjoys it.

Achievements

In her secondary school CCA, she was a squad leader for a year. She went for a cheerleading competition, participated in many projects like Project Mi (rice donation project), house cleaning at Kallang Bahru, planting trees in Chinese Garden.

Experience

Internship at SPH as a digital designer/animator/editor. Is most comfortable with Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and After Effects. She even tried being a journalist once, interviewing someone in a video. She has done logo designing, motion graphics for live streams, did headlines news compiling, special projects like 10 words of the year of 2017, even designed a wallpaper for a studio and many more.
