This is PTE Faris Nabil, a Fast Craft Seaman from 191 Squadron. It is his very first participation in the National Day Parade, and he is excited and nervous about being in the parade marching contingent.
“We have been rehearsing almost every Saturday since April. Some of the rehearsals took place during Ramadan, during which I have to fast. It wasn’t easy during that period of time, but my friends and trainers’ support helped me through it. There are also many uncles and aunties in the marching contingent who were also fasting. Seeing how they persevered through the practices was a motivation for me to perform well too.”
