Reason for taking up this sport
"I wanted to play tennis during my time in ITE [Balestier], but there was no tennis and the head of physical education asked me to join fencing. I didn't know what fencing was then. I thought it was literally building fences. He then showed me what the sport was about, I tried it, and got hooked. I fell in love with fencing after that." (teamsingapore.com.sg, 08 Nov 2011)

DEDICATION

My grandpa and I took turns to take care of her, even now. But the lure of fencing was too great for me to stay away, and I really want to get home and show them the medal."
