Tell us what made you join JCRC?
I got scammed HAHAHA! Jokes aside, I wanted to contribute further to the hall and also make some improvements and implement some ideas I had to improve the hall and the committees I’m in charge of.
What’s the biggest takeaway from JCRC you have so far?
I think it has to be the friends that I made in JCRC, really makes the experience much better!
If you had to describe your comm in one word, what would it be?
Ok moving on from JCRC, what other sports and comms are you in?
Softball, Takraw, Handball, Track, SRU, TSU, HPB, ARU, Acapella, and Choir.
Get yourself a man that can do …. EVERYTHING 😍
Wow really a man of many talents. Can you share how you balance your hall life and studies? Do you have any tips for anyone struggling to do so?
I would say the most important thing is time management. The one thing you learn from hall is how to juggle the multiple commitments you have along with your studies and you just have to prioritise them well! With good time management (and maybe some lack of sleep), it's totally possible to balance hall life and do well in your studies.
Now to get to know you better, if you had to be shipwrecked on a deserted island, but all your human needs—such as food and water—were taken care of, what two items would you want to have with you?
10000 packs of hi-chew grape and the machine that turns the internet on and off (just to annoy people for fun).
What’s your source of motivation?
The desire to see things through and complete things to the best of my abilities. Other than that, sleep also motivates me HAHA, like I will try to push myself to complete things I planned out for the day so that I can sleep earlier.
What would you say your strengths and weaknesses are?
Strengths would be my fortitude and drive to complete things, decent time management and also my ability to function on little sleep HAHA.
Weaknesses would probably be being impatient and easily frustrated, being lazy to socialise and uh cannot dance?
Fella says he can’t dance but this photo proves otherwise!!
What would you say you’re known for?
"The rage softball guy", "The a lot of commitments guy", "The virgin walk guy".... nothing good la HAHA, people just like to make fun of me.
Ok, what would you say is the most traumatic experience you’ve had in your 22 years?
There's probably a better example, but in softball we used to wear groin guards to protect our stuff, and I got hit by a ball so hard that it cracked my groin guard.
What was the last gift you gave someone?
I have no idea... I forgot to buy presents in the last two birthdays I attended.
If you could compare yourself with any animal, which would it be and why?
Tiger, because I can shout loud?
