About Me

          Writing has been my passion since young.  I write fiction for leisure, but I prefer a career in professional communication.

          My journey to become a professional writer began in 2021, when I took the Professional Communications Diploma program at Douglas College in New Westminster, BC.  There, I learned about the communications profession, introduced to various genres in writing, and improved my writing skills to write clearly and concisely.  
          By combining my passions for sports and writing, I hope to connect with sports fans with my professional writing skills and bring success to sports organizations with my previous work experience.


Here are my education and work history, plus my professional attributes


  • Trustworthy, committed, and a quick learner
  • Gather information with researching and interviewing skills
  • Work well both alone and in a team to meet deadlines 
  • Handle sensitive matters with tact, discretion, and confidentiality
  • Generate public interests with event posts on website
  • Personable with colleagues and others
  • Fluent in English and conversational Cantonese
