My parents struggle to make ends meet every month. As such, the Yeapp Sui Hong bursary has provided tremendous support and enabled me to better focus on my academics. My benefactor, Mr Robin Ng, has inspired me and I hope to be able to help those who are in need and contribute back to the society like how he did in the near future.

We are currently staying with our grandparents – six people in a four-room flat. We have our own flat but we have to rent it out in order to support dad’s medical fees. The bursary money will help me a lot with yearly expenses including money needed for my course materials.

I work part-time during weekends in Orchard distributing drinks at $7 per hour. Even then it is quite taxing when you are studying and working at the same time. The money from the Endowment Fund will help reduce some of the burden from my school fees.

My dad tries to protect me from most of our financial issues. I try to refrain from eating so I can save some money. To the donors, what you have been doing is really inspiring. In the future when I become self-sufficient, I would also like to help students who require financial aid.

I try not to take money from my mother. She has to pay for the housing loan which comes to about $500 monthly because of the divorce and does not have much money in her CPF. With the Endowment Fund, I do not have to work that much and it can also help to pay back the tuition loan once I graduate.
