I believe that entrepreneurs have the ability (hence responsibility) to make the world a better place, and a way to do that is through technology.

By day, I’m based in Singapore as the Developer Programs Regional Lead for APAC at Facebook. I help developers build local tech communities to make the world a more open and connected place.

By night & weekends, I work on my passion project called TechLadies. This is a community-led initiative for women in Asia to connect, learn, and advance as programmers in the tech industry. Since launching in Jan 2016, we’ve taught 200+ ladies how to code in Singapore and Malaysia; saw 7 of these ladies getting internships or hired as junior software engineers.
