• Pro­fes­sional Soft­ball Player

“I joined Sin­ga­pore’s national team in 2000; I even as­pired to play in in­ter­na­tional leagues one day. But when I en­tered – and won – Star Search Sin­ga­pore in 2003, I left the team.”

• Zookeeper

“While wait­ing for my A-level re­sults, I worked at the zoo. I love an­i­mals and I’m re­served by na­ture. So I thought the job would let me work qui­etly along­side an­i­mals and I wouldn’t need to deal with peo­ple. Of course, I learnt that ev­ery line of work re­quires hu­man in­ter­ac­tion. It’s ironic, as I’m in the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try! But my ex­tro­verted side only came out later.”

• News Pre­sen­ter

“I used to write my own scripts and painstak­ingly mem­o­rise them, be­cause I thought all news­cast­ers had to do that – un­til I grew up and re­alised that they were read­ing off the teleprompter!”
