AGA was born in Hong Kong on January 21, 1988. Her father is a Filipino. Her elder sister died as a result of cancer in 2015. Prior to becoming a singer, AGA worked as a flight attendant, hoping to save enough money to study music abroad. After being discovered by renown Hong Kong producer Schuman 舒文, she began composing demos for him.

Her debut eponymous EP was released digitally September 2, 2013. AGA won the Best Newcomer Award Gold Prize (叱吒樂壇生力軍) at the 2013 Ultimate Song Chart Awards.
