Q1. Please introduce yourself?My name is Jolie Wan, 21 this year. I’m a very cheerful girl who loves to express myself using words. I came from a small town Setiawan, Perak. In order to pursue my studies in college, I came to Kuala Lumpur. Recently I just finished my Diploma in Mass Communication. Currently working in The Coverage Bureau Media as a Vice Chief Editor.
Q2. Before you step into this industry, what is your previous field?To be honest, this is my first official job, before this I worked as an internship in an advertising company. Before this, I’ve heard rumors about how bosses bullied internship students, hence I’m very grateful that I found a very good company for my internship. My superior was very kind, giving me chances to learn things, and taught me patiently. After the 3 months internship, I went back to college to finish my last semester. Even though I wasn’t able to continue working in that company, however I’ve been keeping in touch with my colleagues, in fact I miss them a lot! I’m also very grateful that my current job is related with the course I took, hence I enjoy every moment of my job.
Q3. Who is your biggest inspiration in life? Why?Our characteristic was shaped through times, no one was born with particular characteristic. Families and friends played a very important role in my life, of course our surrounding and friends influenced us as well. It shaped my optimism and easy-going characteristic. Many has the dream to earn money or become someone great in certain industry, but my dreams are: slim down, earn money, get married, go around the world. Travel around the world is my biggest dream! Money is important, however it can only fulfill our basic needs. Seeing beautiful world could fulfill our inner heart. The world is huge, human is so tiny. Fill our inner heart with world, this can’t be done with money or status.

Q4. If you have to choose an animal to represent yourself, which one will you choose?Hmmm, if I have to choose an animal to represent myself, that would be peacock!

It always make people think that it’s hard to approach me, but to tell you the truth, I’m a very friendly person! Haha!
Q5. What are the most important things in life?I think having hobbies is the most important thing in life, only when you love something and work hard for it, that makes our life more interesting, ain’t it? Of course, going through hardship is a must, but why? Because every hardship that we gone through will be helpful in the future. The sweetest things are always found in hardships. Lastly, the most important thing is to smile everyday, put happiness in us! That would warm up people around us as well.
