I am a civil servant and one of the happiest moments in my life would be standing on stage to collect my local 3rd prize for Standard Chartered Marathon 2018.
I am excited to participate in Relay Majulah to raise funds for the community. Such running events inspire me. I wish for more such events to happen to garner interest and participation for more runners to play their part for the community in need. I hope that with every step that I make, it would create a better tomorrow for those in need of help.
