Skating to most, it might be just a Sport, to some, a way of Transport and to the others a way of Art.

To me skating is the extra wings to my life, the magic that give my life its sparkles.

Skating make me feel alive, the same feeling your heart races when you spot your lover. Heart pumping, it makes me feel that I am able to achieve anything, feeling alive. With my skates, there is no need to worry about transportation, nor being afraid of getting lost, rob nor even attack. (I will be faster than them. 😀 Except for being shoot of course. Lol ) It lifted my limitation. It open my door to travel and it is also a bridge of communication on its own. Skaters from around the world never really have to speak the same language to understand one another. Skating to me is my magical key to the door of freedom, my extra wings on my feet.

Being my happiest while I am skating, I hope to live in this happiness and just skate. I hope to travel around the world and spread this joy of skating around. I hope to bond more people from different race and nation together, and even with our differences become a big family filled of love.
I also hope that skating can be develop to express our more expressive side, and that more females from around the world can see that it doesn’t just have to be a dangerous, aggressive, more suitable for male sport. It is as beautiful as it is fierce. In achieving my dream, I hope to, with skating, promote life, environmental awareness give a platform for people all different to express themselves, love and love life.

How it all started

At the age of 11, I somehow started Inline skating when my dad found a pair of skate in the store of our home.
Since then, I have always felt my heart race whenever I caught my eyes on the SKATE. It just seems to cast some magic on me, that get me so excited, even just thinking about it.

However when there did not seems to be much more I could do with skating, I discover FREESTYLE skating, while I was entering the school’s skate club in my Polytechnic. I was 16.
After that, it was history.

I started going competitive, in Speed Slalom and Slide, entering my 1st competition National Rookie Competition 2007, bringing back my 1st gold win.
Then representing Team Seba, it brought me around the World, I entered the international skating scene the very year.

I have taught numerous school from Singapore Sport School, to Chatworth Primary and Lauren Winston Nursery.

Finally stopped competitive Freestyle skating in 2010, due to a sporting injury, I then started of my path as a model. However, I am looking to go back into Competitive skating again and hopefully make this my career!

 

With the constantly lack of funding, support and publicity from our government, the athletes in Singapore are constantly struggling to keep their sports going and themselves competitive. Much can be done however constantly problems still arise, many from the political side of the industry.

Your help to change this and the chance to bring in more media attention and coverage would be very much appreciated!
