I am a Diploma graduate of Ngee Ann Polytechnic and currently pursuing my studies, Bachelor of Science in Early Chidlhood Educational Studies and Leadership, with Wheelock College, Singapore. I look forward to new challenges and loves to organize gatherings and events. Working with children gives me the opportunity to look forward to new challenges and excitement everyday. I hope in the future, I can create my own storybooks for children and design toys or games that are developmentally and age appropriate for children.

This is my resume and portfolio of the experiences that I had the past few years.
