What will you do with your cash prize?
First of all, I would buy some new clothes because the judges complained about my attire sometimes (haha), next I’m going to buy some things that I’ve been longing to have. And finally share some for my family.
Last question, where will you go from here, will you continue to pursue a singing career?
Yes, I do want to continue through the part of a singing career, as I mentioned before I love to take on new challenges and improve my skills along the way. Maybe Taiwan or China will be my next stepping stone. I’m looking forward for this in the future.
