CHILDHOOD & EARLY YEARS

  Childhood
" In a way, I'm spoiled. I had everything I wanted as a child. When I was modelling part-time at university, my parents would drive me to casting and auditions. Even my friends gave in to me. "
She studied English literature, psychology and theatre studies at NUS, winning a campus beauty pageant title and a modelling contract along the way. Then, she was one of a handful selected for the honours course in theatre studies. When she took up ballet in Secondary 1, she was much older than her five-and six-year-old classmates. With gymnastics training and determination on her side, she passed the examinations ahead of time and soon caught up with her own age group. In her teens, ballet was her first love, followed by stage acting. But when the TV opportunity came along in 2001, she decided to see how far she could go down that path.

Aw has a trusting nature, says Mr Ken Lim, 44, who runs Artiste Network, the company that manages her. " She has wholesomeness and innocence, " he says. " It allows her to think better of people. That is why I signed her on and that is what I want to preserve, " he adds. -THE STRAITS TIMES MONDAY, JANUARY 12 2009

Media Life
联合晚报 2008年2月16日
" My career was stagnant after Holland V and I was longing for another breakthrough role. Now, five years later, I finally hear people saying they no longer 'see' Jeanette Aw in The Little Nyonya but in the character instead. [As an actress], that's what I look forward to. I'm lucky to get all these memorable roles. It's all about luck and timing really." -8DAYS #950 JAN 1, 2009

 
Dear One,
My media life has been pretty exciting...
cliched as it may sound,
it's what I would call a rollercoaster ride.
There are ups and downs...
unexpected twists and turns,
all of which you will never be able to prepare yourself for.
Sometimes, you find yourself all geared up and ready to go,
yet the circumstances that are presented before you aren't what you expected...
sometimes you just want to be yourself and let down all defences,
yet others read too much into what you do
and you aren't taken for what you are.
At the end of the day, you are simply taking the ride, not controlling it.
Be it in this line or otherwise,
what really matters is you are still the same person at the end of the ride,
as you were when you first hopped on.
Simply...Me
