(Left to Right) Nikisha, Ray, Javier, Sean

Ray Chua (Team Leader)

Veni, Vidi, Vici - I came, I saw, I conquered. Well, almost. Beat the enemy team in this laser tag game 5-4, but still trying to overcome that universal enemy, homework. Oh well...

My friends tell me I should stop talking to myself, but it helps me think up ideas and concepts. I write Minecraft fanfiction as a hobby, conjuring up vivid images of flesh-dripping-from-bone giggling-laughing zombies to dissolve-your-insides-and-suck-them-out spiders. May seem gristly and gory, but it seems to attract the readers. 

Watching shows with a good storyline is also a favourite of mine, with Avatar: The Last Airbender being my first ever show, The Walking Dead being the second. 

I strive to do my best in being this team's leaders, no matter how many wrenches are thrown into the machine that is our IRS project!

Javier Tay (Research Leader)

Hey there! I am Javier Tay and the researcher in this group. I formed the name for this team (which was recycled from last year), "Team Delta", much to the chuckles of my fellow team. 

I am no sporty person, as you can tell from my physique. It might surprise you that I joined a sports CCA, fencing, and I actually enjoy it. The musicians whom I like listening to is Air Supply (an oldies soft rock duo), Adele (a British female talent) and Bruno Mars (an American pop singer). I basically spent most of my childhood reading and I developed Myopia because of my passion. I will do my best to strive for this team and make it the most awesome one for years to come! 

Nikisha Tan-Mishra (Multi-Media Manager)

Hai :D I'm Nikisha, the multi-media manager of this group, TEAM DELTA (/o3o)/ 

People always tell me I'm hyper, annoying, and restless, though I think they're just exaggerating. A little. I really like watching anime, reading manga, writing stories, and listening to music. Come to think about it, I think I spend more time doing nothing but sitting in my room listening through my playlist as compared to anything else. I like faster, more upbeat songs such as rock, alternative rock, discotheque and occasionally EDM, though I somehow also occasionally have a preference for more broody songs. I also like songs that have a good storyline or deep meaning, so I really dislike most romance songs, since many of them pretty much have the same plot. Bands/Singers I like are Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, Linkin Park, and 30 Seconds to Mars. I'm also a big fan of Vocaloid, which is a voice synthesizer programme. I just realised that I spent three-quarters of this rambling about music. Oh well. 

Sean Lim (Researcher Leader)

Hi! My name is Sean, I am one of the research leaders. My interests are android computing development, consumer electronics and I love sports as well. I mess around with the computer a lot when I am free and learn many things about tech while doing so, which makes me sort of well known for help with IT. I do sports such as basketball, badminton and soccer. Amongst all these sports, I am best in Badminton and so I joined Badminton CCA :D

Our Code :D
