No One or Thing Can Intimidate You

“No one or thing can intimidate you. Only you can.”

My mentor once said.

With that, I went from:

Being reluctant to apply because the criteria for the award intimated me,


Embracing growth mindset and applied for it anyway.

The result:

An awardee of the 2018 SkillsFuture Fellowship.

This award is presented by the President of Singapore which honors individuals as masters of skills and mentors of future talent.

This afternoon, I am privileged to be an invited guest for the 2019 SkillsFuture SG Fellowships and Employers Award.

I would not be here if not for the wise words of my mentor.

Three things I learnt from winning the award:

☀ Ask “why not?” whenever we feel intimidated
☀ Be audacious and yet patient. Courage allows you to dream bigger while having patience enables you to forge ahead.
☀ Ignore the naysayers. Seek those who motivates you with encouragement and practical suggestions

What are you intimated by?

Celebrating Learning

“Stories that Inspire – Celebrating Learning”. As a lover of #lifelonglearning, am absolutely delighted to be part of this publication that celebrates learning!

The publication features stories of ex-St Joseph’s Convent gals. Grateful to my English teacher Mrs Dolly Chan who was then the Vice-Principal, for her encouragement to stretch beyond my comfort zone. It ignited my love for reading and writing, as well as public speaking.

Educators certainly play a critical role in shaping the future of their students!
