Life at Deloitte

Sabelle Kee learn life lessons through her sports

Decisions magazine - Issue 13

Sabelle Kee started water-skiing at the age of three. Fifteen years later, she was inspired by her sister to take part in water-skiing competitions and has since represented Team Singapore at the Southeast Asian (SEA) games twice, each time coming in one of the top three in the category. Sabelle holds the national record for the women's tricks category and is a second year student at Singapore Management University. She shares more about her sport and how it has shaped her both as an athlete and person. She also gives insights to her summer internship with Deloitte.

Tell us more about your sport.

Water skiing has three main categories, tricks skiing, slalom skiing and jump skiing. My pet category is trick skiing where we are given 2 passes of 21 seconds in which we have to do as many tricks as we can to score the highest number of points. The more complex the trick, the more points we would be awarded.

What do you like about your sport?

There is always something new to learn so it never gets boring even on a normal training day. Also, the waterski community has allowed me to forge many close friendships with people from around the world.

Which has been your favourite competition?

It would have to be the Hong Kong Series Competition as it took place in the middle of a nature park and all the competitors were incredibly friendly. It was great to take that few days off school to travel and catch up with my friends from around the world after the competition.

What do you think is your greatest strength?

My greatest strength would be my determination and drive in completing whatever tasks I am assigned. This stems from my competitive nature as an athlete. I strive to give my best in every situation to ensure that I achieve the best outcome.

What is your greatest accomplishment?

One of my greatest accomplishments was clinching second place for the Open Tricks category at the 2015 SEA Games. This has kept me motivated to continue putting in time and effort into my athletic pursuit and to mirror this attitude in other areas of my life.

How was your Deloitte intern experience?

My internship at Deloitte was a really enjoyable one. I got the chance to meet and work alongside many genuine individuals. Deloitte interns are extremely well taken care of and there are many activities and events organised for us outside of work.
