Hi there, thanks for dropping by 🙌 Let me introduce myself!

My Background

I’m from Singapore and currently in my 20s. I graduated from a local university at the end of 2022 and am currently working as a software developer.

Why I Write

I started writing in 2020 and continued to do so because I found writing a really great way to express myself! Writing has allowed me to process my past in a clearer manner and undoubtedly empowered me to heal & grow from my experiences. Also, I think it’s a beautiful thing to be able to share our thoughts and ideas and learn from one another.

I’m happy whenever someone can benefit from reading my articles, be it learning a new perspective or a new idea, or simply having a brief comedy relief 😄 I’ve been blessed with great support and encouragement during my whole writing journey, so that really keeps me going 🙏

What I Write About

I write on a variety of topics, as I would love to see my life experiences through the lens of “what can I learn from this?”, be it a good or awful situation.

Here is a guide to the public lists of my articles (will be kept updated):

Ending Note

I hope that my sharing can help people down the road in any way possible, and that truly inspires me to write more as I go through life! I’m on my own lifelong journey to becoming the best human I can be and that takes work and time, so let’s walk life together!

Thank you for reading!
