LEE FONG KAREN LORIE
Lorie Yee Kin Sien is aged 20 years. She is a national table tennis player and a second-year student pursuing Culinary Arts at the Escoffier Institute of Mauritius. She started practising table tennis in 2010 at only the age of 9 years.
She has chosen table tennis as a specialisation because it has helped her to grow up personally and it has improved her self-confidence. Table tennis has helped her to create her own identity in the sporting field. She is someone who is admired by coaches and friends and are always there to motivate and encourage her to progress further.
Her best achievements, so far, are:
- First place in the Girls’ Team, third place in the Girls’ Singles and third place in the Girls’ Doubles events at the CJSOI Games held at Djibouti in 2018.
- Ranked 3rd overall for the Top 10 National Tournament in 2021
The TFES is helping her to follow her dream which is to become a chef as well as to excel in table tennis.
