I love being on stage. I enjoy connecting with the audience through personal stories. I aspire to speak, in order to inspire, not to impress.
Since the age of 4, I’ve always been dancing and performing on stage, ranging from Chinese folk, contemporary, to theatrical mambo. Performing arts is my primary inspirations for mastering storytelling and building stage presence.
Topics I’ve spoken or written about:
