[Reproduced from The Straits Times]
Dr Jaclyn Toh Ai Lin, 27, dentist.
My parents still live in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, and my younger sister is completing her PhD in mechanical and design engineering at Pennsylvania State University.
An HDB flat in Redhill.
Reading (fiction and editorials) and ballet.
I STARTED WRITING TO THE FORUM PAGE IN…:
October last year.
WHAT I WRITE ABOUT:
Anything that I feel strongly about, especially social issues.
WHY I WRITE:
I write if I have something I urgently need to say after reading an article or other Forum letters.
I READ THE FORUM PAGE BECAUSE…:
I enjoy reading ordinary folk's responses to current issues. Some write so elegantly and succinctly, expressing complex sentiments in a way that I can perfectly comprehend.
MY WISH FOR SINGAPORE:
For it to find a middle ground between the pursuit of success and where a good quality of life is possible for everyone.
