I’ve always had a fascination with understanding the nuances of the human condition - why do we do what we do? What shapes our thoughts and our innermost being? What makes us intrinsically human?
To search for these answers, I pursued a degree in Psychology and subsequently went on to work as counsellor in the Singapore Prison Service for 4 years where I journeyed with ex-offenders in the community for a period of up to 2 years.
This exposed me to a whole other world - a world that most Singaporeans would never see. I was given the privilege to walk alongside my supervisees and could better appreciate and understand their pains and their struggles as they trudged around a Singapore that did not accept them.
I had a deep desire to advocate for them and this led me to apply for a research and programme evaluation role at the Prison headquarters, which eventually spurred an interest in user experience.
I strongly believe in designing inclusive experiences for everyone. Because of my past experiences, I am inspired to contribute to creating a world where no one is forgotten.
In my spare time, I like to dabble in quite a few things!
I am an avid reader, embroidery and art hobbyist, regular runner and recreational contemporary dancer.
