Shum began learning to skate in 2003. His international debut came in March 2014 at the International Challenge Cup in The Hague, Netherlands. In September of the same year, he made his first Junior Grand Prix (JGP) appearance, placing 7th in Aichi, Japan.
After winning the junior silver medal at the 2015 U.S. Championships, Shum was assigned to the 2015 World Junior Championships in Tallinn, Estonia. He qualified for the free skate after placing 16th in the short program and went on to finish 20th overall.
