Symbolism
If you are wondering about the logo that resembles a lotus flower on the main page, it is inspired by the name Shia Lynn, which means 'Summer Lotus' in Cantonese. Born as Toh Shia Lynn, she has recently taken on her husband's name and is now known as Shia Lynn Victor, although she is mostly known as Shia Lynn among her friends and community.  Shia Lynn resonates with the symbolic meaning of Lotus (bloom from the muddy waters) because it represents her tough childhood and obstacles that she has experienced which contributed to her self-awakening and self-actualization journey.
