What is your regular job?

I work as an online media planner and I’m a co-founder of BrandBaker and digital agency. I’m a social media queen and my work is in the digital field. Social networking is now part of my life, I can’t live without it. My business partners and I also met on Twitter – we became friends for a year until we decided to open a company together.


I’m active on Twitter, and I have 4,200 followers. Mostly I tweet about events that I get invited to, life, relationships, nail art and salsa dancing. On Facebook I have over 4,000 fans on my page “Nailing You Nail Art”.


On my personal Facebook account I have 1,700 friends and mostly they are people who work in the digital industry. So the digital world is my life, I tweet, I share almost everything. All my best friends work in the digital industry.


Why were you chosen as one of the competition winners?

I’m not sure, but from what I heard the Samsung team said that all four winners have a strong passion for video blogging. The rules stated that the judges were looking for creativity and knowledge on video editing and presentation.


Have you been to the Olympics before?

Laguna Golf Phuket

I’ve never been to the Olympics before and I’m not really a fan, but I do watch it on TV every four years.


Have you been to London before?

I’ve never been to London but I have been to France, the United States, Australia, and most of the countries in Southeast Asia.


What do you have to do as a winner of the competition?

During our 10 days in London, every day they will give us assignments. We need to be with bloggers from other countries and produce a video blog together every day. We also need to write a blog with photos every day as well. The assignments will cover a variety of subjects from museums, markets, fashion, and transportation.
