With a heart to bring peace and happiness to people, I have wanted to become a psychologist since my secondary school days. However, that changed after an internship with Advisors Alliance Group during my third year at the National University of Singapore, where I learnt about the real meaning of life insurance: love, care and responsibility. Since then I decided to embark on the journey as a financial consultant. As a native Chinese who came to Singapore under a MOE scholarship at the age of 15, I can connect well with both my Chinese peers as well as with locals.
My accolades include Million Dollar Round Table memberships, International Dragon Awards and Speaker for the 21st National Chinese Life Insurance Congress. I was part of Singapore’s first 100 IDA team in history to achieve the 100 IDA Team Award 2019 and I am a member of AIA Centurion Club 2020.
There’s greater meaning in being a financial consultant.
Financial consultants are the ones who ensure security and continuity to a family in the face of critical illness, disability and death. In this way, we too help establish harmony and stability in society. Doctors save lives and psychologists calm the mind, but financial consultants prepare people for rainy days and ensure peace of mind when they go through a crisis in life.
Teamwork makes the dream work.
Financial consultants should be competent, genuine and responsible, and I hope to eventually build a team of at least 300 financial consultants to impact more lives together. Just like the values I learned in my early years of financial consulting, I hope to share the values of life insurance which are love, care and responsibility with more people.
Psychology background as a silver lining.
While I may not get to live my original dream of being a psychologist, my background allows me to be more understanding towards different perspectives my clients have and be able to empathise with their situations better.
