SHINE Closing Ceremony 2011

Thanks to Nuffnang!

I was invited to attend the Shine Closing Ceremony.

SHINE Youth Festival is the annual “youth for youth” festival

to celebrate and showcase youth talent in Singapore.

This year’s theme is “Enough Talk, Just Do”.

The month-long SHINE Youth Festival 2011

drew to a close today with the Stars of SHINE Awards Ceremony,

after a successful outreach to 250,000 youths to adopt the

“Enough Talk Just Do” attitude.

The ceremony was held in Vivo City - Golden Village.

Buffet was provided and it was yummy!

It was pretty crowded.

I saw some famous people at the event.

This is what I like about being a blogger.

You get the chance to meet famous people, make friends and networking!

Popcorn combo + "Captain America" after the event *wohoo*

The chocolate eclair were melting in my mouth!

Initiated in 2005,

SHINE Youth Festival is a platform for youths

between the age of 15 and 35 to indulge in their passion.

The initiative celebrates youths’ creativity and dynamism

and encourages them to use SHINE Youth Festival

as the stage to demonstrate their energy and grow their skills and talents.

Youth Festival is held in the designated Youth Month in July.

Here's the 10 nominees!

Their story really inspired me.

The three Stars of SHINE 2011 awardees distinguished themselves with their selfmotivation and dedication, which saw them pushing their own limits towards extraordinary accomplishments that have inspired other youths:

(a) Justine Lee, 20, is a social entrepreneur who started with a bold idea to donate a pair of school shoes to children in the rural parts of China for every pair of shoes that he sold.

(b) Mohammed Farhan Bin Mohd Firdaus, 25, was a playful and indulged child who found the courage and strength to step up and support his family when it fell on hard times, and excel in his studies. Today, he inspires other youths from poor and troubled backgrounds.

(c) Salihin Bin Sinai, 24, is the first intellectually disabled athlete in Asia to reach Africa’s highest peak—Mount Kilimanjaro, demonstrating that with perseverance and courage, there are no limits as to what the intellectually disabled can achieve.
