In 2003, she signed up as a contestant on Star Search Singapore and won the female champion title as well as the best acting potential title. Having won Star Search Singapore, along with Felicia Chin, Li Qiyang, and Zhang Shiyu she was offered an artiste contract with Mediacorp, Singapore's national television studios. Under Mediacorp's management, she received her first dramatic role in An Ode To Life as Weng Xiaoyun, a muddle-headed nurse who unexpectedly falls into a love triangle. An Ode To Life was shown in 2004 on Mediacorp Television and later won the best dramatic television series award.

She went on to star in the 13 episode comedy series The Cheer Team, broadcast in 2004, as Miss Bai, a cheerleading teacher who was most inappropriate for the job.
