Ever Wondered What Are The Dreams Of Singaporeans? This Video Reveals Some Of Them!

Remember when we were younger, we have all been asked this question: “What is your dream?”

All of us had great ambitions then, ranging from being a doctor, lawyer, and some even saving the world. In a video recently released by Singapore’s National Trades Union Congress, a few select Singaporeans representing all walks of life shared what is or was their dream.

It is interesting to note that of those who are working now, most of them (excluding one) are not chasing their dreams or are in a field different from their dreams then. Perhaps it is now time to pursue and revisit our dreams again?

Here are some excerpts from the video:
