New Straits Times - - Entertainment -

IT seems that there is noth­ing Dr Soo Win­nci can­not achieve. After spend­ing six years work­ing on her PhD in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion, the 32-year-old singer and ac­tress is chal­leng­ing her­self by mas­ter­ing a new craft — Chi­nese mar­tial arts or wushu.

The Pe­tal­ing Jaya-born for­mer beauty queen is tak­ing wushu classes at an academy in Ta­man Me­gah, Pe­tal­ing Jaya.

“It has al­ways been my dream to take up wushu.

“I love the flu­id­ity that each move­ment, kick and punch cre­ates.

“I have al­ways wanted to take up mar­tial arts that fea­ture soft and grace­ful move­ment but also firm at the same time.

“So wushu seems to be the per­fect recre­ational ac­tiv­ity for me,” she told the New Straits Times.

She con­stantly shares up­dates on her wushu jour­ney via her Instagram ac­count @dr.soow­incci.

Hold­ing on to the age old adage that learn­ing is a life­long jour­ney, Soo is al­ways chal­leng­ing her­self at pick­ing up new skills and crafts.

“You’ll never know, those new skills might come in handy one day,” said the multi-hy­phen­ated artiste, who is also a skilled pi­anist and ac­com­plished pole dancer.

The Terus Teranglah singer is busy trav­el­ling the coun­try and con­duct­ing mo­ti­va­tional talks to univer­sity stu­dents.

Re­cently, she re­leased a mo­ti­va­tional book en­ti­tled In­winc­ci­ble X.

In it, she wrote about her jour­ney in be­com­ing an artiste, as well as jug­gling her time be­tween work and fam­ily.

Dr Soo Win­nci dis­cov­ers that wushu is the per­fect recre­ational ac­tiv­ity for her.
