‘Helping people drives success’*
I’m passionate about building a strong, high-performing, fellow network, through empowering and cultivating the potential of people that I connect with.
I have a genuine desire in helping others seek their potential, focus on strengths and motivate them to be the best they can, through mentoring, sound advice and listening with an accepting ear.
I am known as a ‘chief’ in the organizations I have worked with, and have risen within the ranks to reach a managerial level at a young age in companies such TMG and Openasia Group. I have achieved this by inspiring, impacting and rallying my co-workers to use their potential to the fullest extent to build high-performing teams.
Leadership is not about being the ‘boss’, it is about supporting and nurturing the talents of others to reach common goals and targets. It is with this philosophy in mind that drives the interactions that I have with people daily. Whether its work colleagues, gym buddies, friends and family, I aim to inspire others to be the best they can.
I have a very clear picture of who I want to be in this life as a person and professionally. The next stride in my career trajectory is to continue expanding upon my knowledge. I am very proud to be awarded the Eiffel Excellence Scholarship by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development and now find myself in Paris attending IÉSEG School of Management, to sharpen my skillset and strengthen my business strategy and vision.

I believe that life is a journey and mine is full of color and diversity. No matter where I roam, I always try to remain true to myself. My blog posts are musings and learnings that I have encountered thus far on my journey, with the desire for recording impressions and memories and also with the hope of being shared to inspire, motivate and ignite others, simply because “Writing enables you to figure out what you are really thinking and really feeling” (**)
