The Advocate

Opportunities that many take for granted are not always a given when you are disabled.

Being the first Singaporean woman to benefit from a Guide Dog, my journey as an advocate started with raising awareness, so others who follow can have a dignified tomorrow.

Our Asian attitude towards disabilities perpetuate the many antiquated ways of “inclusion”.

Discrimination and inequity are a daily challenge no matter the disability.

My vision is to nudge society towards true inclusivity where every person who is disabled has the equal opportunity to lead a meaningful, dignified life!
