A conversation between two lecturers from Singapore Polytechnic, Diploma in Architecture – Parekh Ujjaval, originally from India and Singaporean, Yio Yang Huat on how they started off as colleagues to becoming good friends while they fulfill their roles as caring educators.
We are a group of students seeking to encourage social integration in Singapore through a series of conversations with people from all walks of life.
With the increasing influx of foreign communities into Singapore's shore in recent years to support Singapore in various sectors like service, economic, construction and so forth, the conversation of social integration has been gaining significance.
We hope our project will allow people to see the common humanity we all share, that despite our differences in habits, language and cultural upbringing, there are a striking number of similarities. Every person still has their interests, dreams, and desires. People still feel the need to be respected and loved. And every person has something to share – be it stories, experiences and ideas. We would like to encourage Singaporeans to embrace differences and celebrate diversity.
