Roles/positions in school: Director of the sports strand and secretary for U18 Dragons Basketball
What is your happy space?
My happy space would probably be on the basketball court. It’s a place where I can stay active and enjoy myself whilst being around friends and just being me.
What do you aspire to be when you grow up and why?
I am not 100% confident on what career path I would like to follow as the future holds many surprises but I would think based on my interests and subject choices I could potentially be heading into the sports medicine career path. This path intrigues me because I genuinely enjoy helping others in need and combining that with my fascination of the human anatomy and love for sports, it could be the career path for me.
Tell us about your favourite activity/project in GIS.
As a sport enthusiast, I really admire the Dragons programme GIS offers before and after school hours. Giving every pupil no matter the age or skill level the chance to participate in a wide variety of physical activity is really encouraging to see. Especially with the quality of coaching provided alongside great facilities, it is definitely one of a kind in Kuala Lumpur. Aside from the sporting aspects of projects in GIS, project 360 and project smile definitely look like excellent programmes and I would really like to get involved next year.
What is the best part of studying in GIS?
The best part of studying in GIS would by far be the friendly and welcoming atmosphere that the students and staff help to create, as well as the numerous opportunities that everyone gets to learn outside the classroom.
As a director of strand, how do you see yourself leading your team?
As a director, I don’t want to be seen as someone who strictly tells others in my strand what to do but more as someone who can be looked upon for guidance and help. Of course I have to brief my team on our projects and assign them different roles but other than that I would like to lead my team in the most beneficial way possible where they feel comfortable around me whilst having fun and being productive at the same time.
Share with us some of your proud achievements in life so far.
Being chosen to lead and develop the communication and language skills for primary EAL students back in year 10 for a whole 2 months i.e. 6 individual player awards across 2 different sports from year 10 up until now; chosen to be captain of 3 different sports teams; and given the responsibility to be the sports strand director.
Complete the sentence: I wish… to make up the most of my time in GIS and be the most influential person I can be for people younger and even older than me, and deliver positive moral values which pupils will carry with them for the remainder of their school days and hopefully further on.
Describe GIS in three words.
Family, unity and togetherness.
