35, Race Car Driver How did you get into rac­ing? I’ ve al­ways loved cars since I was lit­tle, but never thought about rac­ing un­til a friend sug­gested I take partin the 2014 Red Bull Rook­ies Search. I’ m now in my se­cond full sea­son of rac­ing at Se pang Cir­cuit. How did you over­come any gen­der- re­lated road­blocks? In the be­gin­ning, the road­block was me—though I loved the sport,I thought rac­ing was only some­thing that only men do. If any­one had any­thing nasty to say, I ig­nored them! What have you taken away from race car driv­ing? It would be the drive and de­ter­mi­na­tion. I can ap­ply it to what­ever I want to do. How do you wish to em­power the next gen­er­a­tion? By show­ing them that you can do any­thing you dream, as long as you work hard, stay fo­cused, and be live in your­self.
