Jade Kua “Last year, I de­vel­oped my first app, Dare, to teach com­mu­nity CPR, and au­thored my first chil­dren’s book, How We Save A Heart. In 2019, I will con­tinue de­vel­op­ing child and in­fant CPR ed­u­ca­tion lo­cally. Also, I’m al­ways telling my kids to dream big, so it’s my wish to bring my CPR pro­gramme onto an in­ter­na­tional plat­form one day.” Kim­i­hisa Abe “This year, I have a few things I hope to achieve. I want to climb to the top of Mount Fuji in Ja­pan; lower my golf hand­i­cap to below 10; in­vest in a food busi­ness, which is some­thing I’ve been want­ing to do for a while; and con­tinue to live hap­pily with my wife, Kyoko.” Mar­i­lyn Lum “I’m look­ing for­ward to an­other year of re­search stud­ies and get­ting one step closer to com­plet­ing my doc­tor­ate in ed­u­ca­tion. As the vice pres­i­dent of the Sin­ga­pore Is­land Coun­try Club, I can’t wait to con­tinue lead­ing our May Day Char­ity event and sup­port­ing our ben­e­fi­cia­ries, which in­clude the So­ci­ety for the Aged Sick.” Pek Lay Peng “This year, I hope to re­alise the dream that I have for my fash­ion busi­ness, So­ci­etya. I want to ven­ture out­side of Sin­ga­pore with it and launch at least two off-site spa­ces, like a popup at a fash­ion week, for in­stance, so I can show­case the works of the tal­ented Asian de­sign­ers we work with to the re­gion and be­yond.
