About Me


Work hard and Enjoy little joy in daily life
Learning myself and having a proper rest when I need.


I consider myself quite open minded person. I try to not have any stereotype or prejudice on everything because I don't want someone to have that on me at first sight. I should admit that it is so hard to not be but at least I am still trying.

Experience as much as I can in 20s was my goal. So, I have learnt creative writing, business management, theatre, and I have expereince of working in Education agency, Performing arts agency, NGO, PR Agency, Language education company and volunteering in India, S.Korea and the UK.
At the moment, I'm trying to choose one career path, but my curiosity seems never ends. So, I have no idea what I will be doing in the next stage of my life.


- You are never too old to learn
- Connecting the dots
- Nothing comes for free
- Happiness is a state of mind
- Kind to others
