“Spend your time with your family. Appreciate every moment you have with them. They are already happy when you’re able to be patient with them.

I want to study Business. That is something I personally enjoy, and I want to be able to help my father in his business as well.

My father has an air-conditioning business, where his business helps in servicing the big industrial air-conditioners you see in shopping malls. I want to be able to contribute towards making my father’s more IT-friendly and forward, as it is still quite traditional right now.

This is something I want to do, not what my parents wanted me to do. My parents were always very supportive, and they gave me the freedom to chase my dreams. They allowed me to choose what I liked, as long as I work hard for it. I hope all youngsters remember to chase their dreams bravely!

I enjoy every moment I get to spend with my dad. He’s actually quite old now, he’s about 70 years old. My dad married late and this is actually his 2nd marriage, so I have an older brother and older sister.

Having a parent who is older makes me become more mature. I feel there is a greater responsibility for me to take care of my family. I’m thankful that he’s still healthy despite his age, and I hope he is able to stay longer with us.

My dad used to be able to run around, and he loves travelling. But now he doesn’t travel as much, as his legs are not as strong as before. I decided to take a different approach to see the situation: despite being not as strong as before, I choose to appreciate any and every moment I have with him.

My dream is to be able to use my first paycheck to take my parents travelling overseas. My dad has visited many places before, but I think I would like to bring him back to visit my hometown, China.

My grandfather and his ancestors used to be in China, so I think it’ll be nice to visit. I was told that my grandfather actually went through the Second World War. He was quite well-to-do at the time, so he ended up providing shelter for everyone in the village!”
