About

Hey, I'm JJ :^)

 
A Malaysian currently based in Melbourne. Moving abroad for education at 17 was exhilarating, scary and an incredible privilege.
 
While down under, I've completed a Bachelors of Commerce and will soon don the dangerous cap as a Masters of Information Systems graduate from the University of Melbourne.
 
I'm drawn to start-ups because experimentation is often encouraged, and I learn best by doing. Previously, I managed operations at Bring Me Home to combat food wastage. In my final semester, I will be interning at Melbourne Connect - a new innovation hub. Looking forward, I'm interested in exploring product management.

Goals

I'm currently focused on creating more "stuff". In the past, I have actualised several ... shower thoughts, including an IKEA-inspired outfit, a birthday itinerary on 21hour.party (it is as it sounds), and a hilariously bad phishing attempt.
 
Whilst incredibly fun and entertaining, I now intend to channel that energy towards more tangible and rewarding projects.
 
For example, this website! My goal is to make engaging content about my ideas. Recently, I also designed an app and produced a 2020-one-second-a-day video (ongoing project for years to come).
