I became interested in the early 1980s because of the late J.B. Jeyaretnam. It was an eye-opener for me, how a society could gather behind men like him who fought for us.
I feel I can identify with the residents in Ang Mo Kio GRC, which needs someone like me, a PMET (professionals, managers, executives and technicians).
What issues will you focus on?
Minimum wage, inflation and overcrowding.
Favourite spot in Singapore?
Wherever there is a concert, especially a rock concert. I'm a lead guitarist.
