Not one but two teams of Diploma in Mass Communication (DMC) students received merit awards at the DrugFreeSG Video Competition 2022 under the Young Adult category.
The competition, organised by the Central Narcotics Bureau, required participants to create a two-minute video which captures how life could be celebrated – by being drug-free.
Team #Stronger2gether (Nur Qistina Binti Mohammed Azmil, Choo Jing Yin, Lek Xuan Ping, Fisqtina Asyura Binte Mohamed Khairul, and Amos Eu Weng Lok) produced a video that told the story of a protagonist who resorted to substance abuse due to stress and family problems. In a world full of darkness, the support from a friend was what she needed to get herself back on track.

A separate production by Team E.G.A (Lai Pei Jia, Lee Wei Jie Shawn, Sa Shruthi, Siti Nur Haziqah Binti Nor Shariman, Ong Yun Kai, and Marcus Ching Chi Lock) centred around a man trapped in drug abuse who received unconditional compassion, love, and support from his brother which helped to turn his life around.
