Every year since 2014, the International Women's Fund (IWF) Education Fund has been recognising and supporting young women from financially-challenged backgrounds during their tertiary education.

The grant affirms these ladies beyond their academic excellence, nurturing their resilience, character and commitment toward making strides in their respective fields. This year, the IWF Education Grant Award Ceremony 2019, held at the...

Meet Jamie Koh, founder of Brass Lion Distillery, Singapore’s first stand-alone micro-distillery that manufactures their own local gin. Jamie’s adventure-loving personality and passion for entrepreneurship led her to open three distinct and unique F&B concepts in Singapore, despite the competitive landscape and multiple hurdles she faced.

Can you bring us back to the beginning and share with us how you came into the F&B industr...

Is there such a thing as a “perfect” job or career? What does it mean to find fulfilment and happiness in my professional and personal endeavours? How do I know if I am making the right decision about a career transition?

Most of us would have faced these questions at various points in our lives, and we would have often wondered if there was some way for us to be better equipped or able to be deliberate in thinking about our li...

1. What inspired you to join YWLC?

To be honest, me joining YWLC was a coincidence! Back in 2015...

Hi my beloved YWLC members and mentors,

Some of you who were at YWLC's 10th year anniversary celebration would have witnessed me perched precariously on a small rectangular box trying to tell everyone about my story of 'grit'. I am so grateful for the outpouring of support, and humbled that ladies across different life stages all felt it spoke to some of the tribulations they have been/ are going through. If you missed it, you...

What are you most excited to share and learn in this upcoming Mentorship journey? 

I look forward to sharing my professional experiences at the early stages of my career; in doing so, I hope to share some insights that took me years to gain. Work life is demanding, and work-related stress can affect our performance and health. Having a successful career is not just about knowing your job well; a big part of it is how we cope wi...

Spotting Ms. Gan and Jesslyn at the dinner venue was not a difficult task; even in a relatively filled restaurant, the bright smiles and cheerful laughter from Ms. Gan and Jesslyn’s table in a corner immediately caught my attention. Many of us may know that Ms. Gan, Singapore’s first female Brigadier General, is also our country’s highest female ranking officer in the SAF. What many of us may not know is her extremely friendly...

At a cosy lunch setting environment on a Friday afternoon, meeting Julie Yeo and her mentee Lou-Ann Seet, was a light-hearted and enjoyable session over great food. Having gone through the YWLC Mentorship Programme as a mentor and mentee respectively, we hear from Julie and Lou-Ann how their previous experience contributes to their mentor-mentee relationship.

Julie, what is a typical day like for you?

Julie: For work, I handle c...

Action speaks louder than words would be a good way to describe Michelle’s leadership and mentorship style. And that fits perfectly with Letitia, her mentee of 2 years who is also very much a hands-on person. One could tell from their interaction that Michelle takes a keen interest in Letitia’s development. She remembers that Letitia has recently changed her job and as soon as she arrives at Prive Wheelock where our interview...

There is something about Savina that draws you to her – perhaps it could be her distinct impeccable style and on point make-up, her steady gaze on you as she studies you while paying close attention to the conversation, or the conviction in her voice as she shares how she kept going on in her entrepreneurial journey. One thing is for sure, she is a lady boss who is relentless in pursuing her dream.

At 23, she already has severa...
