Yahui knew she wanted to act when she was as young as five. Her dream came true when she won the Miss Telegenic Award at Singapore’s talent scouting competition, Star Search.
“Joining Star Search was a dream come true. It was pretty tough as I did not have an acting background but I had a feeling that this would be my shot. I love acting. The thrill of portraying different characters and the challenge of ‘throwing’ myself into each character … it’s what I love,” says the actress who lists Rui En, Chen Liping, Huang Biren, Meryl Streep, Shu Qi and Blake Lively as some of her inspirations.
