I used to be in banking sales for more than 3 years where I assisted in account openings, credit card sales and loan applications. It was a sales role, and my job often felt repetitive. After I achieved Champions’ Forum during my last year with the bank, I realised it was time for me to move on. I was searching for a role in the same industry until I chanced upon AIA FA where I believed it was a place where I’d be able to grow into a better and stronger person. To date, I’m glad I made the decision to be here.
