Hello!

I'm an Mechanical Engineering sophomore at Nanyang Technological University
— here's what I've been up to!

About

From running my own blog during NS, to taking part in eleven case competitions thus far in college, or creating a government-backed card game — I love jumping into the unknown, learning new things, and solving challenges.

I'm excited to explore entrepreneurship through business and product; and am seeking opportunities in product management or strategy roles.

Outside college, I try digital art, UI/UX design, giving back through community initiatives, or discovering the best cafés in SG — would love to get to know you over a coffee sometime soon!
