This organisation has so many attributes that I truly admire, such as being comfortable in your own ethnicity, having the courage to pursue your own dreams and most importantly, having Beauty with a Purpose. I believe there is beauty in our struggles and overcoming challenges. I would like to use my voice to empower and inspire others to be their best. A Miss World Singapore ambassador should have empathy, compassion and a willing heart to give back to society and it will be my honor to continue this legacy by raising awareness on my causes like mental illness which is severe and prevalent. I would also like to support Sian Chay Medical Institution to provide affordable and accessible healthcare to the general public. It will be once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be able to represent Singapore on an international platform and I am determined on bringing pride to our nation.”
