ACTRESS, PERFORMING ARTS
As a true thespian, Cheryl began her journey cultivating her love for the performing arts at a very young age. Her parents’ love for music and through the carousels of soundtracks was what gave her the inspiration to practice and hone her vocal talent that she is now well known for. So it came as no surprise that when Cheryl hit her adolescent years, she immediately signed up for various auditions leading to her spending a lot of her time in The Actor’s Studio and more recently, the Kuala Lumpur Performing Art Centre. On the small screen, Cheryl is perhaps most known for her role as Young Yehenara, a concubine in the award-nominated musical Forbidden City: Portrait of an Empress. Off the screen and stage, you can often find her spending her hours teaching vocal mastery as she strongly believes in educating and mentoring the future generations.
