When it comes to art and creativity, Chew describes art as an important part of her life, because art is an expression to people’s rights, an exchange of cultural differences, a freedom of speech or even a dialogue to promote peach in society. As a creative individual, Chew applies these principles in her work and life. When asked to share her feelings about being selected as The One Academy Dean’s List Scholar, Chew said, “I am truly honored and the feeling overwhelming!” She claimed that in life and career, there is a lot more to learn from than what is around you, therefore Chew strongly believes in learning from everything and anyone as much as you can. When asked what her secret recipe to staying ahead is, Chew said “Always do everything with all your heart, and always do your best. Never give up and never do anything half way.”
