#JOURNEYTOME .03: WONG LI-LIN

“[I’ve learnt…] the importance of surrounding yourself with people whose mode of behaviour echoes yours, and that we are all armed with resources within that are greater than we realise. That while different, we must love. While difficult, we must prevail. While complex, the principles remain simple.”

WHO: Wong Li-Lin

Media personality, health and lifestyle consultant and mother of two, the 43-year-old also recently launched a website for busy women, especially mothers, called 2 Minutes Today. She describes herself as a learner, and “love” and “growth” are what define her.

HER STORY:

“Everything in my life has been lessons pivotal to my growth. My colourful childhood provided me with the best seats to Life the performance, and People the characters in it.

My ballet training provided me with structure and discipline. It also showed me beauty as well as the world beyond the microcosm of my youth. Teaching has defined my role as an educator and learner. My media life has provided me with storytelling skills and the ability to look at how the world communicates.

Being a parent has shown me what it is like to live beyond myself, and to dig deep.

Being an entrepreneur has taught me humility and connectivity.

Having married and divorced taught me the transient nature of life, the importance of surrounding yourself with people whose mode of behaviour echoes yours, and that we are all armed with resources within that are greater than we realise. That while different, we must love. While difficult, we must prevail. While complex, the principles remain simple.”
