Gen Y Speaks: I come from a humble family background. But it has taught me much

I founded a digital marketing and training company last year at the age of 22 and count my blessings that my business has gotten off to a decent start and I can help support my parents who have been badly hit by the current Covid-19 crisis.

Here, I would like to share how my humble family background has shaped my life so far, particularly in trying out different part-time jobs and saving up for a rainy day.

Growing up in a three-room flat, we had enough to get by but there were many things we could not afford.

My parents had to deliberate for a week before deciding to have a meal at the cooked food stall at the hawker centre.
