Mr. Failed Entrepreneur
Growing up in a single-parent family, I am a 1st generation college student who has experienced hard livings before when my family lost everything from the 1997 Asia financial crisis. I support the living of the whole family now.

Big Life Wins:
I achieved excellent academic results in HKUST and received a full scholarship from the HSBC to study in the University of Oxford. As a failed entrepreneur in F&B for 4 years (and an ex-TV sports presenter – part time job to support my entrepreneurial work financially), I have lost everything more than once but I never say die.
Post MBA Goal:
I subsequently worked in Tech/Fintech/Crypto startups, and currently working at one of the largest banks in Asia, recently granted a leadership award from senior management in the bank for developing a Fintech project. With my experience in startups, I wish to work in the Fintech industry in the States/Asia after my MBA.
