As a dancer
In 2008, I cofounded Redeafination, the first street dance club for the Deaf in Singapore.

Currently, I act as the advisor to the Deaf core team. Read more at redeafination.com

As an academic
Completing a part time Master degree with a full time job has been gruelling.

I am grateful to have completed this journey of Master of Non-Profit Management in Singapore University of Social Services (SUSS) with the Kwan Im Hood Temple Gold Award for excellent performance for this programme.
