Podcaster

I have been physically active from a very young age. Growing up in Hong Kong, I was in the school team for swimming, cross-country and indoor rowing. My passion for sports and exercise have led me to study kinesiology at the University of Toronto (UofT). During my undergraduate studies, I was a Varsity Rower at UofT for two years, in which I received the Most Improved Athlete Award. I was also the Secretary of Exercise is Medicine Canada on campus since sophomore year, in which I was nominated for the Student Life Campus Organizations Award for Executive Leader of the Year 2019.

I started working with the Fit After 50 team in my fourth year of bachelor degree. As a Wellness Coach and Program Assistant, I was responsible of writing blogs, creating exercise programs for clients and delivering presentations about happiness, stress, etc. After graduating from my bachelor’s degree, I have been creating podcasts to promote self-care for a healthier and happier lifestyle. Some of the topics include stress management, social support, body image, and many more!
