About Wen Jie
I would say that I have a strong sense of curiosity – I’m always on a mission to keep myself updated with what’s happening around the world and keeping up to date with latest lifestyle, fashion and food trends as well as other people’s thoughts on the changing trends. Due to my curious nature, I love window shopping while I’m out getting my groceries as this gives me a chance to chat with others to gain some insight as to their thoughts on current affairs.I also make it a point to get some exercise done during the week, my current goal is to exercise for 3-4 days during the week. I prefer to get my dose of exercise in the form of swimming, cycling & cardio training in the gym. Currently I am quite into TRX – a suspension training regime, battling rope & belly dancing.Over the weekends during my spare time, I spend my time catching up on my reading – I usually read manga and books over a nice cup of tea and some cakes. I also spend my weekend catching up on my sleep and I sometimes help my cousin to walk her dog when I visit over the weekends.
What inspired you to become a physiotherapist?
I think that my desire to be a healthcare practitioner stemmed from when I was a kid and had many questions. The negative attitude of adults when it came to dealing with sickness and death was the main trigger for me especially after hearing others repeatedly saying that they don’t know why certain things were happening. I feel that many things can be done better if we put in the effort to understand the world around us, there’s a lot that we will realise we don’t know.
I chose to become a physiotherapist as it teaches me how to deal with musculoskeletal problems and I wish to impart my knowledge on others who are keen to learn more about their condition as well.
Aside from necessities, what is the one thing you cannot go without? Why?
The one thing that I cannot go without would definitely be caffeine. I need at least 1 cup of tea or coffee in order to get through the day. I started to drink tea & coffee from the tender age of 7 years old and I have become so accustomed to it that now, my brain will not function after 3pm if I didn’t manage to get a dose of caffeine during lunch time.
If you could go back in time to change 1 thing, what would it be and why?
I wouldn’t change a single thing, not even getting injured in the past as i feel that all my past experiences have shaped and molded me into who I am today.
