Mr. Alvin Tan Sheng Hui was elected as a Member of Parliament in July 2020, and subsequently appointed as Minister of State for the Ministry of Community, Culture and Youth, and the Ministry of Trade & Industry.
Prior to joining the government, Mr. Tan has worked in the private, public and non-profit sectors. These include LinkedIn and Facebook. He says, “At every stage of your career, you’re effectively learning new skills, pick up a new language. Never be afraid so fail because through failure lies a creative destruction and that’s how we innovate”.
Mr. Tan is an active volunteer and has been for the past 15 years.
In this installment of #Heart2Heart, Anil invites Mr. Tan to talk about his humble beginnings and if we can learn to live with what we have even if what we have isn’t perfect.
