Welcome to my page!

Here, I detail the little experiences I had and what they mean to me.

About Me


Hi, I am Justin and I am a 4th year student from NUS. I spend my limited free time reading books on history, philosophy, and politics. Some of my favourite books include the The Hanfeizi and The Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Recently, I've started rockcliming in an attempt to cut weight, hopefully.
