She has a pet cat at home whom she is dearly in love with called “Rengo”. She likes acting and is currently in the Musical Theatre CCA in her school and she aspires to be in the media industry as a frontline talent. She really enjoys watching anime and sharing about what she has watched with others. She also enjoys listening to music genres such as kpop, pop, jazz, and R&B. She tends to be shy with people at first but once you get to know her, she can really keep up a conversation with you. She is not shy to learn new things and always keeps an open mind about different topics.

The Project

My project aims to help the eldery not feel lonely when they are alone at home. My product serves as a robotic companion with chat bot functions to the elderly as it is able to communicate with them. Peng You is also able to detect when an elderly experiences a fall as it sends a signal to the social services personnel when that happens. It is mobile and can move around the room on its wheels if needed. I created this product because I feel that there are a lot of elderly in this world who are lonely since they live alone in a one-room-flat or are without anyone to visit them. This makes them prone to elderly depression which may lead to more issues down the road. To curb this, my product will be able to communicate with the elderly and help ease their loneliness.
