Janice has been living in Nee Soon for the past two decades. Throughout these years, the strong communal spirit of Nee Soon has left a deep impression on her. She is inspired by the selflessness and fruits of labour borne as a result of the blood and sweat of our pioneer generation. She hopes to walk in their footsteps and contribute positively to the community.
Janice’s involvement in the party began in 2013. She was approached by then Member of Parliament for Nee Soon GRC, Mr Patrick Tay, to volunteer at the Meet-the-People sessions (MPS). With a passion for community service, she accepted the offer and has not looked back since.
Her deep sense of joy from being able to make even a small difference in the lives of many continues to motivate her at the weekly sessions. She prepares petition letters for residents, advises them on the options available and doubles up as a confidante to many residents who seek her assistance to resolve their problems.
Apart from MPS, Janice works alongside many other passionate PAP members to organise social and community programmes for Nee Soon residents. She has gained appreciation for teamwork and camaraderie through these meaningful activities. She believes that it is this common sense of purpose and values that bring the party members together to forge deep friendships and develop ideas that will benefit the Nee Soon community.
