Prior to Reclip.It, she co-founded CityPockets with Jhony in 2010, the very first digital wallet and secondary marketplace for daily deals. CityPockets has been Netted by the Webbys and featured by TechCrunch, CNN, WSJ, Forbes, GigaOm, AllThingsD, Lifehacker, CNET, Mashable, and TheNextWeb.
Prior to starting CityPockets, Cheryl was a management consultant. She started her first business at age 8 and ran a profitable company when she was 16 years old. Despite being a “non-bumiputra” citizen in Malaysia of Chinese heritage, she ranked among the top 100 students in Malaysia in her senior year of high school to earn a full scholarship to study Operations Research and Industrial Engineering at Cornell University. She was subsequently offered the Lester B. Knight Jr. Scholarship from Cornell to study her Master’s in Engineering Management. In college, Cheryl founded the Labyrinth Society, raising $250K for the Sept-11 memorial project (read here), had 4 campus jobs at any one point, sparred competitively for 4 years in the Northeast Ivy League Taekwondo Championship (INTCL) with a 2nd Dan black belt, and was inducted into Cornell’s Oldest Senior Honor Society, The Sphinx Head, which was held by The New York Times in 1929 as “the highest non-scholastic honor within reach of undergraduates.”
