Five Minutes with Jennifer Law

Updated: 11 Sep 2013

This first-time participant of Short+Sweet Theatre 2013 considers herself as tall, sensitive and a dreamer but Su Aziz finds out other things about her too.

Born in Ipoh, 31-year old Jennifer Law has quite a full plate to deal with. A junior art director in a publishing company by day and involving herself in art, design, photography and videography, also event planning and a part-time balloonist by night, she lists travel, reading fiction and watching films as favourite passing time activities.
