Interview on the ‘Disabled to Enabled’ Podcast

I recently had the pleasure of being on the ‘Disabled to Enabled’ podcast, where Jessie Ace interviewed me. She interviews a new person every week, from doctors, to radio DJs, and bloggers! Personally I’m not a big fan of consuming content via videos or podcasts, and am more of a reader. But it’s definitely not a format you can choose to ignore as a blogger, and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to give it a go.

That Awkward Virgin Attempt

I must admit that watching and listening to myself in the YouTube video was quite embarrassing. I guess you never really know how you look or sound like in real life, until it’s played right back at you. Jessie asks both thought-provoking questions, and ones that are just for fun. I share about my life experiences and lessons living with various chronic illnesses, the healthcare system in Singapore, blogging and coping tips. Have a listen, and let me know what you think!

Things I’ve Learned from the Podcast Interview

Whilst it was embarrassing to watch myself, I know that I’ll get used to it over time with more practice. It was actually quite fun, and a more casual and easy way to connect with others. I didn’t realise that I used my hands to gesture so much either! Oh and I need to adjust the camera angle a little better :p I’m grateful that my internet connection wasn’t being petulant that day either. All in all it was an interesting experience for me. Here’s to more podcast and sharing sessions to come!

      Hi Amelia, yes definitely worth exploring all avenues! Ironically I find reading more efficient if we’re talking about time haha. But it was an eye-opening experience. Thanks so much!
