About Me

It all started when I went to support my siblings at a competition. It looked really cool and intriguing, so I decided to try it for myself. Lo and behold, I got hooked! It was a good, fun way for us to bond as a family! (Fun fact: 5 out of 6 of my siblings are fencers!) There are times though when training gets tiring and tedious, and it's then that I always think back to the support shown to all of us athletes by our fellow Singaporeans. The support reminds me that I am not alone in this journey and it gives me motivation to fight on, especially when it feels like I can't do it anymore, because I don't want to let everyone down. It's also encouraging to know that everyone is doing their part to keep our flag flying high in our own little ways.
