1. How did you get into modelling?
It was accidental. I was preparing for my bodybuilding competition (sports model category) and posting progress pictures of myself on social media. Somehow lady luck started smiling on me and gave my profile a chance for these photographers to stumble upon. From then on I was offered the opportunity to do a photoshoot (which has always been my dream of being photographed professionally). I would say… I consider it a collaboration between me and the photographers. If given the chance, of course I would love to pursue actual commercial modelling!
4. What do you love on Social Media? – What do you hate on Social Media?
I love how diverse social media is now as its not only used to bridge communication, but a platform that presents endless opportunities no matter who you are and what you pursue. Oh! And what I love about social media is it became my number 1 source for news and trends at every refresh, how convenient is that!
What I hate on social media? How one sided an issue can be. The media posted can be so limited that it misleads its viewers, to the extend of causing harm and misinterpretation of certain issues. Especially towards the older generation where they get influenced easily and tend to believe what they see on media. It limits their perspective.
5. Describe your personal style?!
Casual. Shorts. Yes, shorts. Ask around, rarely anyone including my close friends seen me in long pants/jeans! I keep things simple and comfortable considering that I live in a tropical country like Singapore where it is always sunny and humid – the lesser the better we say 😛
6. Favorite part of your body?!
Got to be my jaw line. Even when I do put on weight, my jaw line will still be visible and it is something I get complimented on usually!
7. Where are your roots?
Coming from a humbled descent of Singaporean-Malay background, my family is not one to get into the the latest trend and hype. We were considered to be traditional-modern, meaning we live our lives normally yet meeting the expectations and customs of the Malay culture; typically Mum being the housewife and Dad is the one working and being very conservative about ourselves and our surroundings… pretty much boring I would say. Being the youngest child, I am constantly dreaming big, to step out of this well and explore the world, for I know there are greater things awaiting me. The thought of living life in a uniformed way daunts me, it is scary how I am not allowed to pursue what I like, but working towards what other people like and want out of me instead. Now, I am working towards stepping out of my comfort zone and pursuing greater things for myself, of course without forgetting my roots; where I come from.
And this leads to the trend of grooming and cosmetic surgeries to improve on one looks, especially in Korea and how the world’s major beauty influence seems to be inspired by them. Hmm… I am considering one (having plastic work) actually :/ hehe.
