About Campaignends 31 Dec 2019, 11:59 PM
I am an Admin Officer in an Educational Institution. I love running but need to balance the time in work, family, running and other activities that I love to do, such as hiking, yoga, etc. Whenever I complete a challenging run (eg. paths with more terrains or longer distance than my previous runs), it made me realized that I can push new boundaries and set new limits, one step at a time. I feel blessed and grateful that I have friends who were willing to slow down for me, encourage me when I was weak and had lack of confidence in doing my activities.
Through my participation in Relay Majulah, I hope to inspire more people to step out of their comfort zone, help and encourage those people in need to overcome their challenges.
