What are the most absurd choices that you have made? On hindsight, most of these choices actually fit in well and complement the others, forming the puzzle of life.

Tingjun is the first female Executive Director of Mercy Relief in its 12-year history. Being Singapore’s largest independent humanitarian charity, it was established to respond to human tragedies in Asia and to provide assistance to disaster-stricken communities and long-term development projects. She is not only the co-founder of The Chain Reaction Project, she is also a moderator in international forums such as Philanthropy in Asia, encouraging others to contribute to pertinent issues facing the world today. In 2014, Tingjun was awarded the Outstanding Women Entrepreneurs Award for her remarkable success in her entrepreneurial journey as well.
