A Tribute to Mr Lee Kuan Yew

A Tribute to Lee Kuan YewIt has been a sad, sad week for Singapore as the nation collectively mourns the passing of Mr Lee Kuan Yew. I’ve personally found it hard to focus on day to day tasks this week, there has been so much happening across the various online platforms, media and news channels.


As we come together to share our thoughts, memories and stories, and the world reaches out to share their condolences and tributes, I think we can be forgiven for having a reflective and less productive week.


Please read on for a few simple tributes from the Athena community that we would like to share with you in this week’s blog.

While travelling has opened my eyes to rich histories and cultures, it has also made me appreciate the solid infrastructure and political stability in Singapore. This allows us to focus on our personal goals, and we get to go as far as our passion and perseverance will take us.
