Along the way, you faced some challenges that discouraged you. Can you share what they were like?
“Losing fights was difficult and painful because it wasn’t easy to get funds to go overseas for tournaments. To travel all the way just to lose was heart-breaking. The greatest disappointment was losing my last fight as an amateur boxer representing Singapore in the 2015 SEA Games. But somehow, I remained resilient and determined. I kept believing in myself and had faith that my sacrifice and hard work would pay off.”
