#HumansOfFyreflyz (ft. Winnie)

Back at it again with our very own #HOF!
2017 has gone by so fast and we are left with the last 4 months to the end of the year.
This week’s featured human is someone who just recently celebrated her first year with Fyreflyz (woohooo!), our Multitasking Millennial – Winnie!
Let’s get to know her shall we?

1. What’s one thing that you can’t survive a work day without?

Snack time! Food is always the thing to look forward to.
5pm is our “self-declared” snack time to take a break from work as rest is a preparatory step for a longer journey ahead to serve our clients (;

 

2. If given a chance to work in another position within Fyreflyz for a day, which position would you choose?

I would pick intern! I started as an intern in Fyreflyz a year ago and till now I’m still keeping the “I am Intern” sticker on my office laptop. Hahahahahahaha.

 

I picked intern because it opens up so many more opportunities to learn things out of my comfort zone.

Being an intern has allowed me to go back to basic and to build a stronger design foundation too.
I’m very thankful that even though I’m no longer an intern in Fyreflyz, I still get to do many different things and hence the job title as a “Multi-tasking Millennial”

The past year with Fyreflyz resonates a lot with the Commencement address delivered by Steve Jobs:
“…getting fired from Apple (taking gap year) was the best thing that could have ever happened to me.
The heaviness of being successful (being a competitive student) was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner (being an intern) again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.”

 

3.  If you were to have a slogan for your life, what would it be?

At different stages in life I have different quotes to live by, as of now it would be “Just Do It”.
Not a sponsored post hahahahaha.
Realized how fragile life can be recently and I regretted the chances that I didn’t take back then.
I can’t turn back time (unless I have a time-turner) but I will always use that as a lesson learnt.

 

4.  If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor? 

For fictional, I would pick Dumbledore; for non-fictional, I would pick Morrie Schwartz.
I’ve picked them because I’ve read the Harry Potter series and Tuesdays with Morrie respectively and I love the relationship they have with their mentees.
They are so dedicated to mould and shape their mentees even till death.
To summarize, both of them taught their mentees something in common:
Love wins. Always.
