"C3 gave me a chance to be a leader"

Ryan with Ms Indranee Rajah, Second Minister of Finance and Education at WAYS Carnival 2019

Meet Ryan, one of our earliest members of the PACE programme when it started in 2015. Ryan was only 13 years old at that time. When he began to show interest in planning for events, we believed in him. Fast forward 4 years, he is now motivated to try out event management and seeks to be a better team player.

“Since 2015, I began to participate in PACE, organized by Calvary Community Care (C3). It holds activities three times a week. Activities include PS4 games, table tennis and badminton. This helped me to interact with my school mates and also allowed me to get in touch with other like-minded individuals. This benefitted me a lot as this is where I’m able to interact and hone my social and planning skills.

In 2017, I participated in one of PACE’s activities; a night cycling event. It got me interested in planning for future events after witnessing the success of the event and recognizing the importance of having a well-organized committee. This interest motivated me to take on a proactive role as a planner and execute the event in both 2018 and 2019.

C3 Ace gave me a chance to be a leader and an organizer through their support and guidance. This motivated me to head towards the direction of event management and be become a better skilled team player in future events that I will partake in.”

We believe in you and your dreams, Ryan!
