Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    She grew up on a small island east of Malaysia; her father was an energy consultant, and she felt pressured to become a lawyer.

  • 2.

    Around age 16, she was trying to find a self-identity; she got really into music and started writing her own songs and poetry.

  • 3.

    Once she had a small repertoire of songs, her friend got her a gig opening for a big local band.

  • 4.

    Another friend told her he'd help her out if she sent him an MP3 of her music; she didn't know how to only record sound, so she filmed a video.

  • 5.

    She put it up on YouTube so that he could see it; when she saw it getting views and comments, she was motivated to post more.

  • 6.

    One of her videos, "No Christmas for Me," was featured on the YouTube homepage on her 22nd birthday.

  • 7.

    Suddenly, she had calls and emails flooding her inboxes; the craziest one was a letter of interest from the manager of the White Stripes.

  • 8.

    Says every life is a roller coaster ride; there will be low times, but if you just keep hanging on, you'll get through to the high times.
