When and how did you discover your passion for your work?
“There was a unique opportunity when I worked in CCC. I got a chance to go to China for a shooting job. And I got a chance to host a Creative Art class for the students there. This incident has sparked my passion for creative education.”
What were your best memories studying with us - and how has it assisted you with what you are doing today?
“I studied Creative Multimedia (HON), majoring in 2D animation. The creative skills that I learned back then have given me a solid foundation on creativity and understanding what it means to be creative. Not to mention we had a remarkable headmaster -Tan Sri Limkokwing - who was a role model of a creative person.”
I do miss the good old times at Limkokwing – when we had a group project or traveled to a new place to live in and do photo shoots; when we stayed up late together at night rushing for our final project and went out to have a McDonalds supper; Gathering my group of friends to do a short film project - To me those memories are priceless.”
