Caesar Chin.jpg​CAESAR CHIN
CSTRAD MINDEF (Engineer)

"No pain, no gain. One of my father's favorite quote that has been deeply engraved into my life since early childhood till this very day. Being under financial constraints for the most part of our life, the word luxury had never existed, yet sought after. My parents, though having a day job, also depended on the output of our small farm to get by. It was only when I have reached the early stage of my adulthood and when I had went abroad to study in France, that I was able to appreciate the challenges that I have faced had shaped my character and opened many doors of opportunities for myself and my family. Life will continue to throw the odd curveball towards us, knocking us down and bring tears to our eyes, but healing will always come as we pick ourselves up with a stronger attitude and continue to move forward."

ABDUL AZIM BIN AZAMAIN
Ultra Slick Detailing - Managing Director/Professional Auto Detailer

Azim Azamain lost a well-paying job in November last year to the oil and gas downturn. He applied for six jobs. No one called for an interview. "So I thought to myself. Fine. If I can't find a job, then I will create one," he says. He started a premium car wash and detailing shop and a few people soon ridiculed him for setting prices so high. Today, his enterprise Ultra Slick Detailing grosses $10,000 a month. The response has drawn the eye of an investor, who will partner with Azim to open a warehouse style facility by the middle of next year. What did Azim do? What is this guy made of?
