Apart from being a student, I am a writer and public/ TEDx speaker. I believe in the undefined potential of Gen Z, and I work to reinforce this potential in teenagers through my words, talks, workshops and creative collaborations.

I love how I get to bring my ideas to life and inspire teenagers to do more! It is especially uplifting to know that my work has the power to inspire someone, and I hope to make use of this power as much as I can.

Being in the last 2 years of high school, I have studies that take up most of my time and energy. I make some time for myself everyday. I have made it a habit to write daily; it can range from the most mundane things to deep insights on something.

This journey has shaped me a lot. Following what I like to do - writing - I realised how every teenager has skills and talents they can use to impact a change in their community or the world at large. And ever since, I have never stopped!

Hopefully, lots and lots of books! 😜 Haha I dream a future for myself where I am the best version of myself, and, at the same time uplifting other Gen Zers to grow to their fullest and use their passions for change-making.

I read - a lot! When I'm not in school, or doing some schoolwork, you can always find me with a book! I also write poetry, play the guitar sometimes, and star gaze. 😁
