Growth starts at the end of your comfort zone; therefore, growth and comfort cannot coexist. DRCO has presented me with countless opportunities that pushed my boundaries of growth and success. Being the President of the Team Republic Sports Club and several other interest groups strengthened my social and management skills as well as my adaptability to solve unexpected hurdles. Representing Singapore in different culinary competitions here and overseas magnified my knowledge and expertise. The exposure and experience gained were the fundamental building blocks that gave me the confidence to start my own business.
