The Giant Within

Friends of Children and Youth


I was seven when my parents were put behind bars. After this happened, I felt empty constantly and kept to myself. I feared how others will look at me if they knew about my family background.

After I was connected to Life Community, my life changed for the better. My caseworkers journeyed with me for many years and treated me like a friend, even though I gave them a lot of trouble. They never once gave up on me.

With much support, I was promoted to Express from Normal Academic Stream, and went on to study Law and Management in Temasek Polytechnic, which I have graduated from.

Without Life Community’s support, things would have been very different.  I am thankful, and today, I am giving back to help people, in similar situations as I was, receive the support they truly need.
