Singapore President Halimah Yacob has said that Singaporeans cannot rest on their laurels, as the global environment is constantly evolving, and every generation grows up having to tackle its own set of challenges.
She made these comments during a speech she gave at an award ceremony for the President’s Scholarship held recently. Five Singapore students received the President’s Scholarship this year.
Mdm Halimah Yacob said that President’s Scholars in particular have the responsibility to lead others in tackling tomorrow’s challenges, and that as leaders, they need to inspire their colleagues introduce innovative solutions and implement practical policies to address the challenges faced by Singapore.
As leaders of tomorrow, she said that our scholars will be responsible for rallying fellow citizens to work together, through dedication and humility.
She also said that our leaders must serve with empathy, and put the needs of others before themselves.
