What do you do at Narrative?
Community Team

What’s one thing we should know about you?
I come from Singapore. Yes, sun all year round – every Swede’s dream (and every Singaporean’s nightmare).

What book have you recently finished, or are currently reading?
I recently finished The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch and it was truly, truly inspiring.

Favorite non-work-related website:
http://thoughtcatalog.com/ – lots of articles are really trashy but I love how some of them write about my unspoken thoughts. It’s nice to know someone out there feels the same 🙂

What did you want to be as a child?
Lots of things – Ballet dancer, chemist, and then I finally decided on bed-tester so that I could sleep all day. But I’m happy where I am, working in a start-up and hopefully starting up my own company in future (:

Best advice you have ever received:
From one of my internship bosses – “Don’t waste your youth away. When you’re older, you’re going to be married, have kids, and you realize you can’t do everything you wanted to do. Do it now. Travel as much as possible. Do what you like.”

Favorite Quote:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” by Mark Twain (PS. even though it’s been debated if Mark Twain ever wrote this, I still love this quote)

Moment you would like to relive:
It’s tough to choose just one. But one of them is definitely taking the 15-hour plane ride to Stockholm, drifting in and out of sleep and wondering what this journey would entail.
