Protection of Mother Earth can come in so many forms. Awareness will help you make more mindful choices in your way of living.
Tell us your story, how did you get here?
My journey to living consciously began in 2017 when I started to question the role I had as an individual with the platform and influence to empower others. It came about interestingly through a combination of my yoga and meditation practice! I found myself applying the values I learned while doing these mindful practices in every aspect of my life. That eventually led me to question my role as a responsible caretaker of this planet. Being aware of humans’ exploitative nature on this planet pushed me to advocate for a way of living that’s more earth-friendly.
What impact have you made in Singapore?
My advocacy in the sustainability scene has led to plenty of meaningful work! My support for circular fashion resulted in Channel 8 sharing my clothes swapping journey, I’ve been kindly invited by Zerrin to share my perspective on how to be a more mindful consumer, and I was grateful to be a spokesperson and host for Swap4Earth’s Virtual Eco-Conscious Festival.
What does 2022 look like for you?
Despite all the calamity ongoing all around the world, I still see hope in what this year might bring. There are so many inspiring humans out there persisting despite all odds, and that motivates me to keep advocating and collaborating with like-minded brands and individuals in this space.
What do you love most about Singapore?
It’s a food paradise and I can get access to literally any type of cuisine! Since I’m eating more plant-based lately, I’ve experienced a rise in homegrown brands offering products in this space – thanks to the Singaporean efficiency we’re so good at!
What’s the one thing everyone can do to protect our home planet?
Focus on actions you can do and don’t be too hard on yourself. One of the easiest things is to be attuned to environmental news sources to help us be informed on what’s happening around the world. Protection of Mother Earth can come in so many forms. Awareness will help you make more mindful choices in your way of living.
Who is your Local Legend, and why?
I always look up to my mum! She taught me the power of handling things calmly, and my practice of doing this has kept me extremely grounded in the work I do.
