“Finally, for the young generation, we make sure they have a bright future… At the National Day Rally this year, I mentioned Zhang Kai. He’s a student, he nearly failed his PSLE, he went to Normal Technical in secondary school, he went on to ITE, did well, he went to the Poly, did well, he went on to SIT, the university, he became an animator, a designer for computer animation. He got a degree from DigiPen Institute of Technology, the top institute in the world for people making animation and special effects. And he’s now graduated with a DigiPen degree, and a job as an animator. I think that is the Singapore story.”
