About Alan

 alan_20161231_1

I am hearing-challenged.

Due to viral infection in my left ear,  I wear a digital hearing aid in my left ear.

I also have had undergone a cochlear implant surgery on his right inborn dead ear in December 2011.

Despite all the challenges I am going through, I still remain positive today.

I am a people-centric, friendly and helpful administrative support specialist with an optimistic outlook on all things in life.

With more than 8 years of progressive experience in administrative management, new media, customer services and marketing communications, I possess an innate desire to motivate others, coupled with the ability to communicate comfortably at all levels, therefore ensuring an excellent working relationship with everyone to achieve specific work goals.

I am also open-minded, patient and supportive towards others, especially youths and people with disabilities.

In terms of voluntary work experience, I have more than 10 years of experiences in project liaison & coordination, publicity & marketing, photo-journalism, events planning & management.

Awards and Honour

– The one and only hearing-impaired participant in the marching contingent of People’s Association Youth Movement in National Day Parade 2014. Was also picked as the “Singaporean of The Day” in August the same year.

– Given a 5-year service award for making valuable contributions while volunteering with People’s Association (PA) in 2013.

– Bestowed a Friends of Yishun Town Secondary School (YTSS) Awards in 2010, a privilege award which is given to graduates of whom have had been consistently making significant contributions to the school.

– Selected to represent Singapore in 9th Korea-ASEAN Future Oriented Youth Exchange Programme (Seoul, South Korea) in 2007.

– Nominated for Best Newcomer award in PAYM Awards 2006.

Youth Mentorship

– One of the 18 youth mentors invited to participate in YTSS mentoring programme (for Secondary 1 – 3 underperforming students) from April to Dec 2012, on a trial project basis.

– The first hearing-challenged youth to be selected and invited by National Youth Council (NYC) to join another 39 youths in the inaugural Young ChangeMakers (YCM*) Youth Panel in 2005, which assess and funds community projects initiated by informal youth groups or individuals.

I was on the panel till 2007.

Back onboard in 2016 to help young people fulfilling their community project ideas.

Through YCM, I have had mentored a number of mentees in secondary schools, junior colleges, and polytechnics, in helping them implementing their community service projects.

*YCM is among grant schemes made available to Singaporean youths by National Youth Council (Singapore) today. For more information on YCM, you may wish to check it out  -> YCM information page.

It is your disabled attitude that determines your disability, and I learnt flexibility in beating my own limitation as I grew up so that I can still gain more life opportunities for myself. Positivity helps.
