I was born in Malaysia, lived in Saudi Arabia for a few years, and then moved to the United States in 2008. My senior year of high school I took a Personal Finance Class that changed my perspective on everything. For the first time, I realized the financial hardships my parents faced getting to the United States. I came to appreciate the sacrifices they made for me and my brother. It inspired me to dedicate my life to finance and economics.
I graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in Family Financial Services. I originally started at Jericho as an intern, which quickly transitioned into a part-time Paraplanner role at the firm while finishing college. I am now Jericho’s Operations Manager.
Family: My family comprises of my wonderful parents, my brother, and my sister-in-law. During college, I had the pleasure of living in a Younglife house with 9 other brothers in Christ who I will always consider family.
Faith: After coming to America, our family went to church. This was something that I knew about and went to but didn’t care for. Everything changed when I met my Younglife leader Ben. He showed me what it means to follow Jesus but most importantly, the adventure and joy that comes with it. After graduating high school, I decided to become a volunteer Younglife leader. Since then, I have been a leader in the Westerville area serving at both the high school and middle school levels.
Fun: Since 2016, I have dominated the fantasy football landscape, being viewed as the G.O.A.T in many of my fantasy football leagues. When I’m not trying to make trades with my league mates, I like to go to the CrossFit gym to break a sweat and to throw down with a great group of people.
