"What resonates with me are Arc's values - Simplicity, Joy, Compassion, Support and Commitment. These values are very much in the DNA of everyone who works here. With humanity and kindness, they provide a sanctuary for children with serious illnesses. They form a strong support system for the children and give them a chance to grow as individuals. I became a volunteer 10 years ago. The CEO of my company is a strong believer in giving back to society and he has known the Founders of Arc for a very long time. That's how I learnt about Arc. And after seeing how the centre is run, what it stands for and most of all, the people behind Arc, I haven't looked back. Arc has lived up to its values. It has shown me what courage really looks like and made me realise how petty some of the things I constantly worry about are. Just being here and seeing how happy the children are, and how they react to everyone at Arc fills my heart with joy.''

How has Arc influenced the path you've chosen? The course I have chosen is Diagnostic Radiography. Ever since I was young, I have had an affinity for science, especially Biology. My interest in Biology deepened after I was diagnosed with cancer. But without Arc, I might not have pursued science, which requires a lot of discipline and dedication. If I hadn't gone to Arc, I would have been quite lazy! Many Arc volunteers helped me to stay focused. They helped motivate me to study. They also taught me how to separate my study time and play time, which was really beneficial. Arc also provided a calm and quiet space for me to study. Why did you go to Arc? When I completed my cancer treatment, my doctor told me about Arc. At the time, I didn't have anything to do while waiting for Secondary school to begin. My doctor suggested that I spend time at Arc, get to know other kids who went through the same things I did and also to do some studying so that I would not fall behind when I re-entered school. So I went, maybe twice or thrice a week when my mother was at work. I stopped only when I entered polytechnic. What are your fondest Arc memories? The overnight camps. I remember we used to play dodgeball at night and we had soccer matches as well. Everyone had fun. Even the aunties who volunteered joined in the fun. I miss those days and cherish the memories deeply. What have you learnt at Arc? Arc taught me many things. I have learnt to care and to have patience. Before Arc, I was clueless about a lot of things, including how to handle little children who have special needs. I've realised that we're all the same. We just need a little care and love. And with patience, everyone can be happy.
