An active contributor, a life-changer, and a friend to all.
Bold dreams for an individual, but a goal for me.
I wish to develop myself into someone who contributes back to society, influences the life of many, and be there for those I’m close with.
In a way, I’m already working my way towards that idealistic goal — I like to think that the many relationships I’ve forged over 16 years of my life have allowed me to learn from others as much as others have learned from me. I’ve been known by many to be someone friendly, trusted, and responsible, and I hope to continue developing myself on the right track.
As a young child, I've always been interested in computers. From exploring the computer laptop to spending free time in kindergarten at the computer station, I was always fascinated and inclined towards computers and seeing how they work in our daily lives.
My passion fuelled further when I joined the school's ICT Club. As someone quick to grasp knowledge of technology, I managed to pick up basic skills — like using the Office suite of apps and media creation — and put them to use.
Secondary school was where I gained my first-hand experience with code, and it certainly was the most impactful in terms of exposing me to the world of technology. I gained the skill of code, UI design, algorithmic thinking, and much more over my four years in secondary school.
As I grew up, I realised the importance of have core values I can hold on to for guidance. While they may subtly change as I gain better insight to them, I try my best to ensure the core meaning of a value is upheld.

Every opportunity brings something to learn.
As I continue to develop myself as an individual, I also pick up valuable skills that help be become more of a developer as I go on.
Starting in 2018 when I picked up Swift, my first programming language, without any prior introduction to the world of code, my passion for technology further fuelled as I got to grasp more concepts, participate in more events, and expand my knowledge. Thus far, the skills of Swift and Python sit comfortably in my toolbox, with Java and Kotlin still a work-in-progress.

A tinkerer, an experimenter, and a developer.
Who knew playing around is a good thing?
To build up on my skills, test out what I know, and to learn new things, playing around is a good thing.
The result of the tinkering I’ve done is the several projects that I have been a part of. No matter a school project or a personal project, I make it an effort to give everything that I do my best shot. Doing so allows me to learn what I do best and showcase the quality of work I give at the same time.
