A professional athlete from Singapore in the sport of Rowing. In 2013, She took the risk of losing her job to train full-time. She went over to train in Sydney where the training environment is more conducive for high performance rowers. She used her savings to support herself in Sydney. The whole experience was worth it because I became Singapore's first individual Gold medalist in the South-East Asian Games in 2013.
Now, Saiyidah is embarking on the journey to become Singapore's first rower to qualify for the Olympics. The journey has been long and arduous since she won 2 years ago with events that hinder her performance like injuries, having self-doubt and all the other distractions in life. She has been 5 months away from the qualifiers and I am not going to let anything get in the way between me and my dreams.
