There are multiple facets to my being. I am constantly shifting between various simultaneous parallel realities while navigating my limited time here.

My kindergarten teacher once asked me "What do you want to be when you grow up?" My then five-year-old self told her: "I'm here to change the world." I always wondered what that meant.

In grade 2/3, I developed pneumonia and was hospitalized. I was told I would have asthma for the rest of my life. For some reason, I ran every day at recess and lunch (even though I couldn't breathe properly), then demanded my parents to buy me Chinese herbal medicine instead of the Western inhalers by refusing to use them (wasting money) and drank Chinese herbal medicine twice a day for one entire year. Intuitively, I knew what I needed to survive.

In grade 3, I spent countless recess and lunch hours gathering a group of kindergarten students and pretended to be their teacher. I was behind in math and comprehension and spent days trying to catch up.

In grade 4, I started learning piano and was brave enough to perform, sing and dance. I started volunteering, became the class counselor and student council once I changed school.

In high school, I really thought I was going to be a doctor but it turned out I wasn't good at remembering things and math. I had the heart but not the memory.

I've overcome depression for most of my twenties thinking of myself as a failure and also started my own businesses from the ground up and bootstrapping myself unintentionally into entrepreneurship.

I love to learn, make mistakes and evolve. I express myself through personal experiences aka stories.

I find solutions that serve, integrate best practices and move when most are sleeping and awake.

I've been described as crazy, werid and one of the kindest people you'll ever meet. But, don't take it as me being a pushover. Experience has taught me a few things.

I follow my highest excitement and I welcome the unknown which provides clarity from the polarity.

When you have responsibilities beyond yourself such as running a team...your only choice is to rise above all challenges, be accountable and thus growing as a self-aware and intuitive leader.

I'm secretly interested in the oceans, nanotechnology, quantum healing, electromagnetic fields, and grids. But, I'm not sure what to do with it at this moment.

Let's connect if you have the courage and conviction to be yourself! It took me a long time to get there.

Believe in yourself, hustle mad and you'll get it!
