School of Economics, Class of 2023
Recipient of SMU Entrepreneur Endowed Scholarship

"I was curious about many things in my life, and my curiosity became the cornerstone of my life. I love helping other people, sharing data and information, and exploring new areas. These aspects of myself led me to start an education consulting startup to help students in my home country to get information about Singapore's universities. It was not an easy journey, but I learned various lessons that I could not learn as an employee. I would like everyone to take the next step, and challenge themselves. Enjoy your life! "

My entrepreneurship journey has been filled with many more failures than successes. But with these failures come invaluable experiences that shape and sharpen how you think. I firmly believe in the concept that 'we never lose, we learn' and that every challenge that life presents you is an opportunity to grow!

"I envision a world where all individuals and businesses have access to useful and affordable financial services. I believe technology would enable financial inclusion for millions of unbanked people around the world. This has motivated me to intern in various technology firms and Fintech start-ups. Through this experience, I was able to launch product improvements that increased the usability of financial applications. Technology is my passion and I am excited about exciting opportunities in the space!"
