Best memories about Singapore
Can 2 days change the lives? We believe yes!
That is what this short educational trip for 10 Sisters of Code did. New ideas learned, connections made, experiences discovered.
Read below our participants stories and our gratitude to the companies who supported us: NTT, NCS Next , Google, Informatica, Adobe.
Chesda, a high school graduate.
"I can not say anything beside "WOW". I was the one of lucky people who got to see the world premiere of Avatar at Cloud Forest in Gardens by the Bay which is the most popular place in Singapore. In addition, I have learned many things in Singapore and that was the extraordinary experience I've ever had. Besides that, I thought it was a dream to see high buildings, train station, underground, offices that people always work and lifestyles in Singapore, but it was not. It was absolutely real."

"When I heard that I got to travel to Singapore, I almost did not believe it! Getting out of the plane and seeing the hustling and bustling of Singaporeans among the huge building with nature was almost like walking in a movie. I also could note how friendly and kind all of the people are from our host companies. How they were all welcoming and I was so enlightened with our conversations. It was an unforgettable experience that expanded my view the tech industry and of Singpore. The only word I can express is thank you for this life changing experience "
Somavatey, a high school student
"I’ m so thankful for giving me the opportunity to travel to Singapore . This is my first time going abroad and I am so lucky to be able to visit my dream country where I want to live and work. There are many favorite things about Singapore such as efficiency, top notch public transport, no disorder in the country but what stands out for me is SAFETY! Singapore is a developed country and I love the design of the country. One more thing is that It was really nice to walk around Singapore Gardens by the Bay in a great park. Thanks to all the companies for your warm welcome and sharing about what challenges you have faced and how you overcome it. This really sparked my interest even more as I was always extremely interested in technology."

Thank for your support in this journey as well as the feeling of home you gave us. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
