I left school at 16, with no network and no idea what I would do. I just knew I couldn’t keep going through the motions anymore. I had to forge my own path. So I left school, and started living the life I wanted to, on my terms.

It was extremely scary, but I did it anyway. And I’m pretty happy with the results.

Some of the things I’ve done that I’ve most proud of include:

  • Completing a virtual internship with Seth Godin
  • Being one of the first 100 graduates of Seth Godin’s altMBA program
  • Traveling to 10 countries in two years
  • Playing in professional poker tournaments against some of my favorite celebrity players
  • Co-organizing the Social Media Breakfast | Singapore
  • Participating in the StartupBus 2011
  • Contributing to the Age of Conversation 2
  • Starting Thousand True Fans, a marketing agency where we worked with brands like QuickBooks Asia and ONI Global
  • Creating and hosting a podcast to showcase the stories of people who have made a career switch to do what they love
  • Working in the kitchens of award winning fine dining restaurants in 3 different continents

I’m still exploring what the future could hold – and am extremely excited for it.
