“As a PA scholar, I would like to build better communication channels with residents from all walks of life and to forge a stronger bond between the government and its people, thereby paving the way for the shaping of community schemes for the betterment of all Singaporeans. The constant contact I had with residents inspired me to take up the PA Scholarship. I’ve come to realise my passion to serve and work with people on the ground to make a meaningful difference. This gives me a great sense of purpose because I’ve seen how much my job means to the people I interact with.”
