Venice was approached by a company at the age of 17 to start her modelling career, however, she felt that her body was still unfit to be a model and was given a time frame to lose some weight, which she did due to stress from studying for SPM. After graduating she moved to KL for further studies and she did modelling at the same time to pay for her education. After 5 years of modelling, Venice finally started up her own company and it has been 7 months since its launch. This young model-cum-entrepreneur claims that she is satisfied with how her company is now. Being quite the feminist, Venice knows that women can do what men can, like driving a manual car. She wants to prove to the world that women can drive stick too! Being surrounded by technology, Venice is actually a very down to earth and old school type of person, she prefers writing with pen and paper rather than using gadgets. She describes herself as a tiger, courageous and dominant but every now and then, she gives and takes.
“Make sure you get your foundation right, your basic. Racing lining and braking skills matters so much! Tactics are important.” “There was once, I drove on the track, and my racing line was a little out of apex, just by a little, I oversteered and skid twice, so that’s like turning 360 degrees, twice.”It is very important to know how to handle your car and to have your basic foundation instilled in you.
“Throughout my racing school, my instructors have been telling me to get my foundation right, safety first, don’t always focus about winning or driving fast. “Winning is not everything.”Venice’s first race is about to start this Saturday on August 12, in Batu Kawan, Penang, where the blogger and model will be joined with 7 other celebrity racers including actors Fattah Amin, Diana Danielle, Shukri Yahaya and Janna Nick, singers Geraldine Gan and Danny Koo, and beatboxer Shawn Lee.
