I have always enjoyed being at the forefront of technology development, which was why I chose to take up a Computer Science degree at University 20 years ago, I found that the field of Information Technology was dynamic and I would get to keep learning new knowledge within it. 20 years on, I still enjoy being in the field and the learning has not stopped.
Over the years, I have had the opportunities to develop my IT career in various countries, including Australia, UK, Switzerland and now back in my hometown in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I am currently running my startup company Data Smart Kids, teaching computer science fundamentals to children of age 8-15. It is still early days, but I hope that the business will be successful, and many children will come to our classes and learn computational skills that may be useful in their lives later on.
When I am not working, I volunteer at Women Who Code Kuala Lumpur (WWCodeKL), a non-profit organisation with the aim of encouraging and supporting more women in their technology careers. Through WWCodeKL's network, I became friends with Andre Rubin who introduced to me Qian Zheng Memorial Scholarship. I got to know the amazing and talented people at QZMS who work to provide scholarships and guidance for students in their STEM education and am very proud to be part of the team as a mentor.
