Author Bio

I was born in Singapore, and studied in both London and Vancouver. I am fortunate to have experienced education in various countries and cultures, enabling me to better appreciate what I have today.

Having a strong interest in languages and linguistics, I currently work with Linguistics Olympiad committee (UKLO, NACLO) as a Problem Setter. I dabble in polyglottery and Middle Egyptian Hieroglyphs, and major in Mathematics.

Outside what I study, I swim, party, and organize parties for swimmers.

If coping with university is tough, imagine having to struggle with a new environment, manage your finances, and well, housemates. I am Kai, a second year student reading Mathematics and doing a minor in Modern Languages. Quirky? I know. I am still trying to swim my way through heaps of coursework; but I love (not always) every bit of what I am learning. https://www.instagram.com/p/BDDPTknKy0x/ Me not knowing…
