1. Description of Our Community
Although Singapore may be a small country, it is one of the world’s most fast forwarding multi racial country with many young youths who have inspiring hobbies and hidden talents within them. Youths in Singapore have a strong determined sense to strive for success and has hence produced a number of successful and outstanding women with inspiring and great achievements.
This website would greatly appeal to people who want to know more on how successful and great Singapore is in producing so many young successful women both with good characters and talents. This would be an insight and eye opener to those who fail to discover for themselves the hidden potential of our young ladies who can be young leaders of tomorrow’s society. This would be a good opportunity for teens to see the light and discover their hidden abilities within them through the stories of these successful young ladies.
2. Summary of Our Project
We have learnt many lessons during the process of completing this webpage. We have learnt that actually, interests do not all stem from local countries, as the above interviewees also have their interests derived from other countries. Singaporean youths, and especially girls in this case, are open to new things and ideas. Though so, we are still Singaporeans at heart. In the present society, there is a fusion of outside elements in the society and they help to stir certain uniqueness in these Singaporean youths. The youths are our leaders of tomorrow. Unique interests and sincere determination to succeed will enable them to gain a wider perspective which will definitely help in making Singapore a more vibrant and active society. We strongly believe that our youths will help bring Singapore soar to higher heights. We are working towards that day.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
The leader of the project had faced great difficulties trying to get her team members to meet up together for the project. In fact, the team members could only manage to do the project together on every Tuesday and Thursday. The 2 h session on both days proved to be a challenge for the students because time was really tight. With common tests and other examinations flooding them, it was commendable that the girls managed to cope with their project and schoolwork well enough to balance them equally.
The team also shared one another’s burden when some of the team members were absent during the sessions. They had to fill in the work of the absentees which meant double work for them. They were understanding towards the absentees and had not complained about it.
The team had a very memorable experience of interviewing people. It was their first time conducting an interview with strangers. They had to learn from scratch on the techniques of interviewing people. The whole process was very enjoyable as the girls had a great conversation with them.
It was very heartening for all of us to see the fruit of our labour.All the hard work the girls had put in had not gone to waste. It was indeed a rich experience for them and they truly missed the days of working with one another!
