My Background
​​​​​​Upon graduation, I began my career as a hedge fund accountant at a multinational fintech company. A year later, I decided to pursue my dream to be a flight steward so I joined the aviation industry and stayed for more than 4 years. Prior to joining Ambition, I made another career shift into the retail industry as an in-house recruiter. Joining Ambition is by far one of my best decisions as this opportunity allows me to make use of my soft skills and work with a diverse range of candidates and clients, in a multicultural environment.

Roles I Recruit For
My main focus is on junior to mid-level software development roles such as software engineers across all languages (i.e. Java, Javascript, Python, C#, and PHP), mobile developers, and testers (manual/automation).

Outside of Ambition
I am an avid traveller who is passionate about learning new cultures and lifestyles. I also love to hike, and I once challenged myself to climb Mount Kota Kinabalu and Mount Tahan. Apart from that, I enjoy other sports such as badminton, squash, and swimming.
