My current service is called Memoirs of the Pioneer Generation where we go to a Nursing home and we interview the older generation about Singapore and then we write short stories about their experiences. At the moment I have only gone to the centre once just to see what it is like and to introduce ourselves to the staff and the some of the elderly who stay there.
The main reason why I chose this service is because of the story telling aspect of this service. Being able to take other people’s stories and writing it in a way which conveys the “come up” of Singapore.
I used to mainly work with little kids for service because I absolutely love little kids and being able to make their day. I have many cousins under the age of 5 which is why I really click with younger kids. I guess I chose to change it a little bit is to expose myself to new experiences and to work on my story telling which will help me in film.
