I recalled back to my time in school. I thought about the friends I made there.
They were all good people... and they all had big dreams.
But their grades were holding them back from achieving their big dreams. They could be taking the course of their choice in the most prestigious schools in Singapore if it were not for their grades.
I even had a friend who is struggling to find a full-time job for more than a year! And she admitted that it is because she didn't do well in her degree.
I am certain that there are many other students facing the same type of situation as my friends did.
Deep inside, I knew I had to help these students.
But… I was afraid. It was a lot easier to go to university, get a degree and get a job because if I fail… it would affect my family financially as my parents are in their 50s and retirement is near.
But if I succeed… I could improve the lives of hundreds and thousands of students.
