Fly! Really. Fly High.

Wow I’m really so excited for the progress of IKI!! :))) We’re truly flying! For everyone who doesn’t know yet, I started a social media marketing and consulting company last November to encourage Singaporeans to dream bigger, and most importantly, to lead meaningful lives.

If you are a good fit, drop us an email at recruitment@ikiguide.com/ hello@ikiguide.com . Because we have to do f2f meetups with clients, you have to be based in Singapore to apply, ok? ^^ Till then, dream big!! 🙂 ❤

For the next fifty years, I hope more young people can learn to have a vision, dream bigger and establish a solid standing for Singapore on the global stage. In other words, always insist on becoming a better version of your current self, and always insist on expanding your thought and experience horizon. 1. Develop opinions, defend them, but do not be afraid of changing your mind.  Increasingly, making a difference anywhere in the world has become increasingly about first having an opinion and then standing by your opinion. Now this takes guts and strength of character, because it means standing up for what …
