Onward Singapore
Story written By Pearlyn Toh
During my college days, there was a period of time when I was feeling depressed as I can't seem to do well in my studies, and I didn't know what to do in life. I almost gave up studies but my parents were my strong pillar of support, encouraging me to carry on with strength and resilience! They told me to see failures as stepping stones to success and not as reasons to give up! My parents adopted a carrot approach and promised to bring me to Japan once I graduate, and as I am an avid anime fan, this truly motivated me to do my very best! And yes, thankfully for their support, I pulled through what seemed impossible! We all have good and bad days, but we can all walk through it with the right support! Press on and you'll see the light at the end of the tunnel!
