WHO: Anthony Fok, 32, a tutor who runs his own tuition centre.

MY HOME: A five-room HDB flat in Jurong West.

MY PASSIONS: Reading, writing, listening to music and interacting with young people.

I STARTED WRITING TO THE FORUM PAGE...: In 2000, when I was in junior college.

WHAT I WRITE ABOUT: Everyday issues, especially on education and youth.

WHY I WRITE: I believe in sharing my views in an honest and open manner, as well as to stay involved as a Singaporean.

I READ THE FORUM PAGE BECAUSE...: It presents a diverse range of opinions, and it is interesting to see the two sides of the coin. I can also use some of the viewpoints in my classroom discussions with my students.

MY WISH FOR SINGAPORE: I wish for Singaporeans to be more united and more contented in life.
