Welcome, take a seat. When I switched from tennis to badminton a few years ago, it was challenging to be a beginner again. I know the discomfort, but didn’t let it stop me. I pushed through the comfort zone and always asked for help from my coach and peers to help reach my goals. It also helped to learn from the mindset of champions.
Eventually I became a more competitive player but I’m not professional. Hah. I have a lot of interests and get bored easily – but I’ve always followed my dad and he loves badminton. I can’t imagine life without it. Badminton is an addictive sport.

Like most women who play sports, I like to play smart and kick ass. This means being resilient, staying positive and continually improving my game.

Something you should know about me is I’m a scientist and passionate about environment and social development issues. When I’m not on court, I enjoy travelling, writing, music and art. The people I admire most are my parents. They migrated from Malaysia to Sydney years ago to give my sister and I more opportunities. For me, family and friends are among the most important things in the world. Just keeping life in perspective, y’know.
