“From playing U10 football to starting skateboarding at the tender age of 28(!), I have all always been an active person. A lot of my fond childhood memories are of times when my brother, friends and I were outside the house being mischievous little rascals and having a lot fun.

I can’t quite pinpoint what exactly has fine-tuned my mindset to keeping me stay active – it may have been the fat jokes aimed at me when I was younger, or it could just be for the pure joyfulness. Whatever it was, I am super thankful for it as it had positively impacted my life physically, mentally and spiritually (!)

At the time when I was starting a new job following my graduation, I don’t think I quite expected the transition between university and work to be this steep and I struggled a bit at the beginning.

If I hadn’t stuck to my fitness routine, I would certainly have carried on struggling for a longer period of time – Working out at the gym, going for walks/jogs or playing 5-a-side football gave me the break I needed to space out and briefly forget about what’s going on in life.

I am by no means a competitive person and so don’t really set myself targets that I want to accomplish. I guess my main target now, and always, is to enjoy myself whatever it’d be – football, working out, cycling, long walks and now skateboarding. Maybe by the end of the year I’d be able to pull off a kickflip.”
