5 young activists reflect on the national pledge. Rachel Zeng.

Our hope for Singapore – activists speak up

From Rachel Zeng’s blog:

We gathered at Speakers’ Corner today to commemorate our nation’s 44 years of independence.

Each of us gave a personal speech reflecting on ourselves, on the government and the country, based on the words of the national pledge.

Although we had only a small crowd, I personally felt very motivated nevertheless and I really appreciate their attendance. It was also nice to see a few new faces coming along to hear us speak and to see what we were up to.

As I have never really been a good public speaker, I was of course highly nervous. It was a good experience however and I hope that if given a chance next time, I will be able to keep my eyes rooted from my piece of paper… shy lah!
