What does Hong Kong mean to you?
Hong Kong is my home. My roots are here and it’s where I feel most comfortable.
Where did you study?
I spent three years in London at Middlesex University doing my bachelor’s degree in early childhood education and then I did a one-year graduate diploma in teaching at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. I am now back in Hong Kong hoping to put my skills to use at an international school.
Where does your love for health and fitness come from?
Growing up I was a very lazy child. I never played any sports and never went hiking with my family. It wasn’t until I graduated high school that I started my fitness journey. Now I love working out and my family are utterly shocked. I’m not sure what caused this change in me; it’s like I woke up one day and decided it was time to work out. After I went through a breakup, my gym routine increased and I have kept fit ever since. I love the after-effects of a good workout.
What are your favourite activities to stay fit?
Hiking with friends, outdoor HIIT workouts and weights sessions at the gym.
