The 22-year-old has been picked for a professional fight and will feature in the card for One FC: Total Domination although the organisation have yet to announce her opponent.
She trains with Fight G in Singapore and has been learning Muay Thai since 2007 and recently won on her amateur debut at Ultimate Satria Championship (USC).
Currently working full-time as an operations manager at Darren de Silva's gym, she was surprised to be handed a professional contract this week and will now get to follow in the footsteps of Evolve MMA's Nicole Chua, the country's first female MMA fighter.
In an exclusive interview with FOX Sports, the Tampines native talked about her motivations behind a career in professional MMA as well as changing perceptions towards femininity in the region.
You stated in July that you weren't ready for a professional debut after defeating Nur Atiqah Nadia at USC 2013. What changed in the intervening months?
Nothing, really. They [One FC] said they were interested and I took the opportunity.
I believe you cannot put a limit on yourself. You never know what's going to happen and when the opportunity comes, you have to grab onto it because you never know when it will come again.
What is it like to be a female MMA fighter? Is your perspective different from that of a male MMA fighter?
You have to do what you have to do, whether you're male or female - do all the training to make sure all your bases are covered, rest properly, eat clean and train mean.
Being an MMA fighter is rough, it's not easy. You have to put in a lot of time and dedication.
Do you consider yourself as one of the pioneers of female MMA in Singapore?
Well, I think Nicole Chua is the true pioneer in terms of female MMA. The sport itself is generally known in the country but it only rose in prominence for women when she took to the cage.
I don't consider myself a role model either. But I do want to change the mindset so that people can ask themselves, 'What am I doing? Am I pushing myself to the limits?' Regardless of their gender or how old they are - whether they're school kids or working adults - I would love it if seeing me fight helps them think about that.
Did Nicole's win against India's Jeet Toshi influence you in any way? Did you watch the fight last August?
I was working on the night when she faced [Jeet] but I did watch it afterwards. I respect her for what she did and it's not easy to fill in her shoes.
I haven't had the chance yet to meet her but I'd love to meet her in person. I know that there's a lot of work that needs to be done to emulate her achievement.
When did you get involved in MMA? What inspired you to take up martial arts?
Well, I wanted to lose weight because I was a fat kid [in 2007]!
I was always involved in sports but it was never physically as challenging as combat sports.
I was part of the pioneer batch that started the Muay Thai club in Singapore Polytechnic and I helped run the club as part of the committee later on.
I bet those guys would be surprised, just like I am, in finding out that I'll be fighting professionally in a cage! Though, I know they're happy for me and are supportive of this decision and are looking forward to the fight.
Do you feel that traditional notions of femininity still prevail in modern Singapore? Do they act as a hindrance for aspiring female MMA fighters?
I believe that societal standards towards femininity are slowly changing, especially in Singapore. It's transitioning from women as housewives to those who also bring in the money for the family.
The notion of females having to be the ones as caretakers is still there but it's changing and women are often doing both.
For me, Muay Thai started off just as an avenue for me to lose weight but I learnt that it was a skill, just like table tennis which I also did for seven years, that I would be useful later in my life.
Regardless of your gender, you can't put limits on yourself. If you have an opportunity to pursue something then you have to do it.
Life is short, everyone knows that on some level but you have to keep reminding yourself of it and grab onto a chance and make the most out of it.
