Do you have any fond memories?

Performing at Warwick Arts Centre, when it snowed in Warwick, being a steward of the Arts Centre and interacting with patrons, exam crunch time!, friends and lecturers from all parts of the world, being involved in Warwick Economics Summit

Where did you live while you were at Warwick?

Lakeside (1st year), Leamington Spa (2nd year), Hurst (3rd year)

Were you a member of any societies?

Warwick Malaysian Students Association, Warwick Economics Summit

What are you doing now?

Currently a corporate strategist for a national fund management company that’s managing close to MYR300 billion of assets

Why did you decide to become an alumni ambassador?

I had such a good experience being a Warwick University student – learnt so much and developed plenty of skills while I was there - and so, being an ambassador is a small way for me to give back to the university for all the good it has done me and also to pay it forward.

What kind of people make up the Warwick alumni community in your area?

Most of them are currently working in the corporate side of various industries i.e finance, oil and gas, central bank, legal firms. Some have gone on to start their own businesses and are in public service.

Have you been back to Warwick recently?

Yes, in April 2013.

Anything else you care to add?

I am currently setting up a society for Warwick Alumni in Malaysia with the help of a few friends. We hope to run several events that will benefit both alumni and current students once the society is up and running.
