About Campaignends 31 Dec 2019, 11:59 PM
I am currently a PE Educator who motivates children to move, play and exercise well. Growing up as a young person was not the easiest for me. I tried very hard to make sense of family and studies. When my family went through difficult times, I totally gave up on my studies during secondary school days. In an instance, all my dreams to be a lawyer went down the drain. While overcoming the challenges in my life, I realised that living a purposeful life was more important than one that is defined by wealth and achievements. I learnt to give unto others while believing that God would take care of me. I persevered and eventually attained my degree in 2016. I eventually became a teacher who would find myself to always respect every path that is taken, even if they look longer.
I am honoured and privileged to be part of Relay Majulah to galvanize fellow citizens to give forward to empower every child and youth to live meaningful and progressive lives. So, come be part of this great initiative to shower a little more love and kindness.
About the Charity
The President's Challenge is an annual community outreach and fundraising campaign for charities selected every year by the President's Office. It is a call to all Singaporeans in doing their part in building a more caring and inclusive society. Initiated in 2000 by former President S R Nathan, the Challenge represents the coming together of people from all walks of life, to help the less fortunate. In 2012, under the leadership of former President Tony Tan Keng Yam, the Challenge was expanded to go beyond fundraising by including volunteerism and social entrepreneurship. In 2018, President Halimah Yacob announced a $10 million fund (Empowering For Life Fund) which will empower vulnerable groups through skills upgrading, capacity-building and employment.
