I grew up in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), a multicultural city in Southeast Asia. I initially trained as a Chartered Accountant in Melbourne (Australia) but my desire to be exposed to different industries and business functions led me to embark on a career in management consulting.
In that role, I had the opportunity to work in the areas of strategy and operations across the public, private and non-profit sectors in Australia. My work with public sector clients made me aware of the need for public policy to be informed by sound analysis, multidisciplinary thinking and diverse perspectives. It is for this reason that I decided to continue my learning journey at Cambridge, to undertake the necessary training to be able to work more effectively within public policy. Ultimately, I want to be in a position that will enable me to make a contribution to society through public policy.
