Our first health dialogue (The Brave Talks: Taking Control of Your Health) saw an interesting and in-depth discussion into various matters. Here are useful and insightful takeaways:
Meet Elly, BRAVE cub reporter, 19 years old and a prospective major in sociology at the National University of Singapore. In volunteering with BRAVE SPACES – she hopes to push for more dialogue on intersectional feminism among youths in Singapore. In her spare time, she enjoys Netflix, poetry and making, she says too many playlists on Spotify.
Sulin, 30, is the BRAVE photographer for the Young Women Touch + Goalball Singapore Interaction. She is a fulltime editor/photographer at Raymond Phang Photography, a company with photography accolades. She decided to volunteer her skills in BRAVE SPACES by “heart and gut feel”; “with almost no expectations other than to find herself and gain a wider perspective on life” with the people that she interacts with. She is discovering that by documenting BRAVE SPACE’S journey behind the lens she is in for an interesting ride.
Meet Katie, BRAVE cub reporter, 19 years old and she says more than slightly terrified of turning 20. She joined BRAVE SPACES because of her passion for using education to promote emotional health. A second-year Psychology student at the University of Toronto. She is endlessly fascinated by the rationalities and irrationalities of human behaviour. Her other passions include memes, behavioural economics, and talking about policies.
For Alicia, 31, a composer and music educator, learning processes and the concept of learning as a whole are intriguing. Alicia was the BRAVE reporter who interviewed Sophia Barkham and Crystal Khoo of the Young Women Touch team at last Sunday’s interaction.
On 17 June 2018, Brave Spaces was invited by Singapore Young Women’s Touch (YWT) to be present in their first interaction with Goalball Singapore (GS), Singapore’s national goalball team. Goalball is a sport designed for persons with visual impairment.
