International Women's Day is a day which celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political progress of women globally. In fact, many countries have designated the 8th of March as a public holiday for the advancement of women's rights. In this edition of our regular Humans of Sunseap series, we meet some of the women who play vital roles in solarizing Singapore.

Q: How long have you been working in Sunseap?
A: I've been here since September 2018, so about 2 years plus.


Q: Tell me something about you that most people don't know.
A: I enjoy spending my weekends doing charity work around the neighbourhood, or wherever I can help out. One such example would be accompanying the elderly at the Old Folks' Home.


Q: What is it like as a working mom?
A: It's definitely challenging, but manageable. In my case, I do feel like I'm quite lucky as my kids are now already able to take care of themselves. They are also well-behaved and I don't have to worry about the things that a lot of teenagers give their parents!


Q: What are your hobbies?
A: Trying out new baking and cooking recipes in! Especially during the lockdown period, my family constantly complained that they are stuffed with my 'experiments'!


Q: What do you enjoy doing out of work?
A: If I'm not baking or cooking, I'll be working on my little home garden and making sure I spend quality time with my family.


Q: What has changed since you joined Sunseap?
A: I’ve become more conscious of the fact that we should be prudent in consuming energy and not take that for granted. I occasionally share with my family members about the importance of the 3Rs - Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

A: The roof of my apartment block has solar panels up! :)
