“This has been an amazing journey for me as a Financial Planner and to have participated and elected to be the Runner up for the 2016 and 2017 Malaysian Financial Planner of the Year Award competition has surpassed my own expectations. As the saying goes … “All things work out to those who believe.” I’m thankful and grateful to God who orchestrated the whole experience from the initial invitation from Linnet Lee, CEO, Financial Planning Association of Malaysia (FPAM) to participate, to the whole process of submitting and winning the Runner Up.

From my background as an insurance agent, transitioning to Financial Advisory has not been without it’s highs and lows. I was introduced to the FA world by a very close friend 5 years ago and had zero knowledge of the industry. That same friend now compliments that I know as much as her, if not more. Placing as First Runner Up for MFPYA 2016 and 2017 seals another milestone for me. To all my clients who have become great friends along this journey, this would have been a lonely journey without you all.

The most fun part of entering the MFPYA competition, especially as a first timer in 2016 was that I had no idea of what I was setting myself up for. The only outcome I wanted was the judges’ feedback as I only wanted to learn and grow. I never thought of winning so imagine my surprise getting an email to say that I had been shortlisted, and then another announcing me as the first runner up. What a journey! Amazing isn’t it?”
