When asked why she joined Miss World Singapore, she replied “It would be my absolute honour and privilege to be crowned Miss World Singapore 2018 as this organisation has many attributes that I truly admire such as being comfortable in your own skin, having the courage to pursue your dreams and most importantly, having beauty with a purpose. The pageant shows that beauty is in giving, in embracing our flaws and imperfections and to use our attributes to give back to the community. I would like to use my voice to empower and inspire others to become the best version of themselves. It will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to be able to represent Singapore on an international platform and I am determined on bringing pride to our nation

She believes that Miss World Singapore should have empathy, compassion and a willing heart to give back to society in her best capacities and it will be her honour to continue this legacy by raising awareness on causes such as mental illnesses like anxiety, depression and eating disorder. She would like to eventually start her own non-profit organisation and become a motivational speaker to encourage others to acknowledge their issues as the first step towards recovery is acceptance of the problem. Also, she wants to continue supporting non-profit organisations such as World Vision to provide underprivileged children with better housing and education and Sian Chay Medical Institution to provide affordable and accessible health care to the general population.

The platform she has chosen to support is also personal to her as she has personally experienced severe anxiety, depression and mental illness from a tender young age, and through the struggles and resilience, she has managed to overcome it.
