G6 Interview: Edith “The Jukebox” Kwok

So another week, means another G6 interview. We will be asking Amit a few questions about dragon boating and some about himself.

Q: How did you find out about the Windy Pandas and who/what made you join the team?
A: Sai Chang recruited me, I wanted to meet more people and keep fit at the same time.

Q: How is your experience so far? Is it what you expected so far? or not at all…
A: It’s been everything and more of what I had expected.

Q: What are your goals/objectives with joining the Windy’s?
A: To find great friendships and have fun.

Q: What are your likes and dislikes about Dragon Boating??
A: I love how we have so much fun but at the same time paddle well 🙂 dislike..hmm, the freezing cold dunks!!! 😀

Q: How is your technique coming along?
A: It’s coming along 🙂

Q: What are your fondest memory so far? Any interesting stories to tell?
A: I’m sure Jez, Pang, Vo and I will never forget how I posted a status on my facebook page about Lions. I tagged them all in a status and excitedly asked if they knew about Lions and that we should enter as I had an invite for it on facebook >.< I asked if they’ve heard about it and Vo replied ‘no, nothing, never heard of it’ -.- and this went on for a bit and it wasn’t a few weeks later that I knew they had won Lions last year!

Q: Who’s your favourite Panda whom you didn’t know before you joined the team?
A: I don’t have favourites 😀

Q: Any advice for those that are looking to take up the sport?
A: I’m going to steal Captain Vo’s phase, ‘if you can’t paddle with your strength, paddle with your heart and your team!’

Q: Moving onto other topic, if you can visit any in the country in the world, where would you go and why?
A: There are several places I would love to go, but I always believe it’s who’s there with you and not the trip that makes it memorable.

Q: What are your most embarrassing moment?
A: Probably when I thought I was interviewing for one thing, and ended up being told by the interviewer that I was being interviewed for something else after he asked me if I knew what the job role was :s

Q: And your proudest moment?
A: Getting accepted to medical school.

Q: What did you grow up wanting to be? Your childhood dreams and ambitions?
A: I wanted to be a singer/actress

Q: Tell us something interesting about yourself or unknown fact?
A: I was nearly signed to be part of a girl band last year

Q: What’s the best/worst practical joke anyone’s ever played on you? And vice versa?
A: hmm…there isn’t really a memorable one that I can remember.

Q: If your life was to be made into a film, who would play you and why?
A: erm…can I play the part myself?? 😀

Q: Finally, when is your birthday?
A: 18th March
