TNP New Face 2016: Ashley Soo
Ashley Soo, 16
Student at CHIJ Katong Convent Secondary
Ashley is a fan of rock music, but she is all about K-pop these days - more specifically, she has been listening to South Korean boy band Seventeen.
She said: "I was thrown into the world of K-pop by two of my best friends after constantly listening to them blast Korean songs and talk non-stop about it.
"I soon caught on and found myself listening frequently to the groups and I eventually became a fan of the genre."
What other kinds of music do you like?
The last concert I attended was Ed Sheeran's at The Star Theatre last year.
It was such a surreal experience because I was seated just three rows from the stage.
I never thought I would see Ed live and hear him play all his hit songs. It felt insane to witness true talent since he was performing the entire concert with just his guitar and loop pedals.
What is the most exciting thing to happen to you so far?
When I walked the runway at the annual Fashion Steps Out show at Orchard Road in March this year. It was an amazing opportunity.
What do you do to de-stress?
My ways to de-stress include reading a book, watching a movie and exercising.
Where is your favourite place to go to in Singapore and why?
You can find me at any bookstore because I love browsing through the plethora of books available.
Who do you admire most?
Without a doubt, my mother.
She has never once given up on me and she always pushes me to do my best.
Her kind demeanour and positive attitude also never fail to inspire me to be a little more like her every day.
