You seem like an open book from your mannerisms. What’s your zodiac sign? I think that’ll tell us a lot about you.
Oh, I’m a textbook Leo! Trust me, I fit every stereotype about the fire sign — from wanting to be in the spotlight, craving for constant fun and hating awkward silences. I try to make every space with my presence lively so people enjoy my company as much as I enjoy theirs.

That explains so much, you’re such a natural at being warm to people! Maybe you’re born for this, have you always wanted to be a model?
Fun fact, I used to be a cabin crew for Singapore Airlines but somehow life decided to take me back to the fashion and entertainment industry. I’m a currently modelling but the end goal is to be an actor, and I’m working towards that. It’s all I’ve wanted to do ever since I studied performing arts in college.
It seems like every path you take would bring you to the same place, I wonder what you’ll be away from the public eye.
I’ve thought of it before. I think I would probably maybe still be a cabin crew or be the owner of a small cute café.
Tell us your favorite thing about your job.
Meeting people I’ve only seen on the screen, and working with brands I grew up watching is a dream come true! And it still feels surreal. I have so many stories to tell, and my grandmother has listened to all of them — from the friends that I make, to the challenges I face. I share everything with her.

You sound like a homebody. Yes, you know how people go to different places to getaway and recharge? Some people go to the beach, few love hiking, but I just simply drive back to my hometown.
It’s very sweet how you find comfort in your family.
100%! Mostly my grandmother, since she pretty much raised me, and she’s the sweetest. The cutest thing is when she created a TikTok and an Instagram account just to only follow me. It was pretty hard for her to learn but she wants to be updated on what I do.
I’m sure she’s proud of you. You’re on your way to be a successful fashion boy now. Who would you say is your fashion icon?
Locally? Definitely, Alicia Amin! I have so much respect for not only her work but Alicia as a person, her activism and her passion.

Since you’ve been in the game for a few years now, you must’ve gone through the many sides of the industry as well. How do you navigate through the industry?
I’m quite an open and easy-going person, so it was important for me to learn to setting boundaries, and to protect my own personal space. I think both are equally important in order to maintain your physical and mental well-being.
Any future goals? To be on the front of a magazine cover has always been a dream. I wonder what that would feel like!
Amazing then, this interview would be a great start.
