I am overwhelmed to receive an MBE, it is incredibly exciting, and I feel so proud. Many people have helped me on this journey, and I want to thank everyone for their support.

I was shocked when I received an email about my MBE, thinking it was a hoax. In such circumstances, one can only double-check and chase up the official sources. And after confirmation, I had to keep it a secret. It was all too much but exhilarating.

Once again, thank you for all your support. It is a team effort.
