Teresa Overcame Adversity to the Top

Heartiest congratulations to Teresa Tan of Bedok Green Secondary School and DAS Bedok Learning Centre.

Teresa recently received dual awards for being the model student in her school and for being the top student in her school subject – Basic Chinese.

Here is what Teresa had to say


‘Your mind is the most powerful force you will ever face. It will tell you lies, you can’t do that, you are not meant for that. You can’t go on anymore, you don’t have the energy, you must thank it for its opinion and carry on. ‘


“ The quote above is from Prince EA. I think it is special because in life if I am facing a lot of problems, I can be more motivated to get up and carry on .“
