How the “Singaporean voice of youth” found cognitive clarity as a community builder 🧠 Kuik Shiao-Yin, The Thought Collective
Kuik Shiao-Yin has devoted her life to building up the social and emotional capital of the young nation of Singapore. She was nominated and served two stints in Parliament along with co-founding The Thought Collective, a group of social businesses that spans a school, restaurants, and a civic center. In her work she creates space to equip more Singaporeans with the social and emotional skills they need to create the cultural change *they* want to see.
