Krystal Choo is one of the youngest entrepreneurs in the world being famous for creating the travel app for singles – Wander. It all started back when she was only 12 years old, guided by her constant thirst for knowledge and technology. Born in a modest family in Singapore, her possibilities were limited, but this has never been an excuse to keep Krystal Choo behind her dreams. Dreaming is really important when you have a goal but actions are the ones that really count. She had all the background necessary to help her create her own business. Krystal Choo was already highly experienced in marketing and partnerships before starting to change the world of traveling industry. Coming up with one unique idea inspired from her life and stories of her friends, Krystal Choo has decided to create Wander. Gathering the right people was easy in her case, having a great talent of knowing who is the best in a certain field. But Wander had a predecessor called Zip Trip which was an app created to help tourists get the best travel deals.
The concept got hard to develop and after raising 55,000 $ for the startup, it all went down. Her ambition and vision were clear as crystal, to create an easy to use app that brings people and traveling together. Inspired from Tinder in terms of swiping left or right, users can find their favorite profile and start a conversation that leads to a travel experience. It’s not a dating site and the purpose is to connect basically single people that enjoy their life and somehow being single. It’s not a bad thing to be single and solitude is sometimes a good reason to create great things. Krystal Choo admits that she was suffering from depression even since she was a child and being single can also be a side effect of depression . But this never stopped her creating her own world using her ideas and visions about future and how this continuous evolving niche of single people can benefit from. Couples are a bit harder to convince in doing crazy stuff or taking immediate actions but singles always have time for experiencing new things. She inspires people and she is an idol for most of them by simply proving the famous quote that impossible is nothing. Our mind is the strongest power anyone can have and training your mind into achieving goals is always a guaranteed success if you put some effort along the way.
Krystal Choo is a beautiful woman with a wonderful smile giving you the feeling of a warm person when she starts speaking. You can almost feel you are blessed just by looking into her eyes and this is another important quality for business and evolution. How lucky can we be to be able to travel with a stranger just by swiping ? Any person that comes into our lives has a great influence over our destiny. We are all different and this is the beauty of life, to be able to share experiences, goals or dreams with someone new. Life is made for knowledge and the more you know the more you become. Travelling creates memories and we all know they are the ones that count in the end, so Krystal Choo has given us the chance of a new way of seeing the world around us. Wander has already started to conquer the world, after USA important countries and cities have been targeted : Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea or Australia. We can definitely affirm that tourism has a new ally, and Krystal Choo is the bright developer of a new trend.
