“In 2021, I asked ABRY if they would sponsor The Guest Speaker Series 2022. I have a dream that Singapore’s youths would have access to the best industry practitioners for career guidance. There would be no barriers of entry except interest. Whether the youths want to come for our Guest Speaker Series, would be a matter of interest to them. They should not be held back by the lack of money, networking opportunity, age, background, religion, ethnicity. Adriana Lim Escaño, ABRY’s CEO, said yes. I received a cheque from ABRY at my book launch in Dec 2021. ABRY has built our confidence to grow the Guest Speaker Series to reach the nation’s young people.” Dawn Fung, founder of Little U
