Advisory
“To all our award recipients and finalists… thank you for dedicating your lives to causes greater than yourselves. All of you contribute in various capacities, in different ways, but you all share in common a heart to serve, and a spirit to give back to our community.” - Lawrence Wong, Minister for FinanceWe are delighted to extend our warmest congratulations to Junhao Teow, our Deputy President (Public Engagements), for being named one of the five "Inspiring Youth" finalists at the 2021 Singapore Silent Heroes Award for his work with Advisory.The Singapore Silent Heroes Award recognises ordinary, everyday Singaporeans for their extraordinary humanity and compassion towards people, causes, and missions.For the past five years, Junhao has volunteered diligently behind the scenes to drive Advisory’s online repository of interviews, as well as public programming in the form of industry panels and learning journeys. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, despite having his own studies affected, Junhao led our Content and Programmes Divisions to take our work online, ensuring students could have avenues of support while seeking employment in spite of the pandemic.We are proud to celebrate Junhao’s efforts with Advisory, in service of ensuring that a student’s socio-economic circumstances, family background, and schooling history are no barriers to their ability to have a fair shot at pursuing their aspirations and finding meaningful work. ...

Thank you Minister Lawrence Wong for being part of the 8th Singapore Silent Heroes Award Ceremony 2021, and also cape-ing our finalist ❤👏🏆#SSH #sgsilentheroes #SingaporeSilentHeroes #red #cape #heroes #togetherwearestronger #TogetherWeCan #2k21 #award #ceremonyWhen we talk about our heroes in this pandemic, our frontline and essential workers immediately come to mind.But there are also many Singaporeans who contribute and serve selflessly in our community. They are our silent heroes whose work may not always be visible to the public eye. At the 8th Singapore Silent Heroes Awards Ceremony yesterday, we paid tribute to our silent heroes and heroines.There is Gareth Chua, a youth with autism who virtually summited Mt Fuji to raise funds for those with special needs, and 70-year old Cyril Ong, who provides free cycling lessons to help keep cyclists and pedestrians safe. A disability in her hand did not stop Priscilla Ong from starting 'Project Love Lunch’ in 2016, to give meals to residents in Marsiling, and now Yishun. The many stories of the award winners, finalists and nominees are examples of how we can give back to society in different ways – big or small. As we continue on our journey towards being a Covid-resilient nation, let's strive to be silent heroes in our own ways, and look out for those around us. ... See MoreSee Less
