Which are the 7 languages that you speak?
Mandarin is my mother language, English as my second language, Malay(Bahasa Melayu) as a national language, Hainanese is my hometown language, and other dialects Cantonese, Hakka, and a little bit of Korean.
How did you manage to master 7 languages?
I live in Malaysia, a multicultural country, which consists a number of different races with about 137 spoken languages. Therefore, as a Malaysian Chinese, there's really no excuse for me to not at least know how to speak in my very own language Mandarin, and my national language Malay. English is an international language and it is very much important to all of us living in today's world. I do have a passion and love for the language itself. As for Cantonese, I picked it up by watching a lot of Hong Kong movies back in the days with my family at home. I learnt Hakka through my parents. As for Korean, I learnt it from my Korean friends.
How does it feel to be Malaysia’s Top 2nd Young Artist Silver Award in 2014?
Well, it certainly is something special dedicated for my family. To be honest, I was actually a little disappointed for not being able to achieve 1st place. But it's not the end of the world, there is always a second chance for everyone.
What are your aspirations?
I aspire to be someone who is inventive, innovative, and to create something that can make the world a better place. I want to make sure that I master in whatever I do, because it’s not impossible.
