Has 2018 been kind to you? Or should the question be "have I been kind to 2018"? As we pull out our fairy lights and dust our Christmas tree hidden in the far-end of our storage space, ready for the new year, it's about time to also slow down and self-care.
/Sonder/ the realisation that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as one’s own.
This event has a ticketed and non ticketed parts for the night— the conversation segment (ticketed) and the shopping segment (free for all!).
8 December 2018
Time: 6.00PM - 7.30PM
Venue: The Moon, 37 Mosque Street
Ticket: $25 (early bird price $20)
Join us in an evening of story-exchange that reflects, engages, and uplifts! Hear from 4 speakers on their journey blazing the path of do-good, and experience an evening of thoughtful conversations. We're bringing picnics indoors, filled with munchies, coffee, and tea! All that is left is you!
Here's a little sneak of our speakers for the night:
Speaker #1 - Nurul Jihadah, the founder of The Codette Project, is on a mission to provide minority women with awareness and access to the tech industry to have a sustainable economic impact.
Speaker #2 - Lim Wei Jie, the founder of Foreword Coffee, is on a mission to discover specialty coffee in Asia and to empower persons with disabilities and special needs (differently-abled persons) by providing employment and skills training in the F&B industry.
Speaker #3 - Raeesah Khan is an activist who started Reyna Movement, a regional social enterprise that aims to empower marginalized women and children through community engagement and upskilling programs. Her organisation works with marginilzed communities in singapore and refugees in Malaysia providing them with education and support.
Speaker #4 - Eddy has been dedicating their free time to Beyond Social Services, an organisation in Singapore that helps children and youths from less privileged backgrounds break away from the poverty cycle.
Speaker #5 - Nilushika (Nilu) Jayaweeera, the founder of Nilu Tea, went against all odds to be the first woman entrepreneur to own and operate a tea business in Sri Lanka.
