Friends around me had all made their plans for the school break; some of them were taking up internships while others were packing up their passports and luggages to see the world.

DebDialogues with Looi Qin En

I sat down with Qin En, co-founder of Glints for a quick chat the other day. It was laid back yet focused, much like the dude himself.
