- What do you see yourself doing 10 years down the road?
- who or what has influenced you in your decision?
- If anything was possible, what would you dream of becoming or doing?
When i was in primary school, my brother and i wanted to be airforce pilots because we taught it was really amazing to be able to fly a plane. However, my eyesight started to deterioriate and i realised being an airforce pilot was very much out of the question. In addition, i discovered that i had slightly lower blood pressure so that might affect my orientation. I still held on to the dream of flying and travelling so i thought i could be an air stewardess. Sadly, my height became an issue. I stopped growing at secondary four. I was a mere 1.54m tall. When i was in junior college, i discovered through Community Involvement Programme that i love working with children and youths. At the same time, i was greatly inspired by my English Literature teachers and i set my aspirations at becoming a teacher. On the other hand, i was still passionate about working with troubled youths. So, while studying in university, i decided to major in social work and that allowed me to work with youths at Boys' Town Home for three months. It was an enriching experience.
At this point in time, i am contented with being a teacher. It allows me to work with youths and perhaps, much later in my life, i would return to the field of social work. :)
As for my secret dreams...... i would love to be a travel writer, photographer, wedding planner and florist. I love taking photographs. I love flowers. I love to travel and I love weddings :)
