Screwed Up Moments #8 + Launch of Podcast Series


Now in it's 8th edition, Screwed Up Moments was organised to help destigmatise failure, and to share the message that it's okay to fail, and it's okay to try. These series of talks focuses on stories of failures, where ordinary people come forward to share about their biggest screw-ups, failures or struggles in life, and how they overcame it.

*Special Announcement!*
We are also incredibly excited to announce that at this edition of Screwed Up Moments, we will be launching the Screwed Up Moments Podcast! The first season will feature 9 of our past speakers, and is produced and hosted by Danny Koordi. Now, you can listen to their incredible stories at your own convenience!

Speaker #1 - Vincent Ng
After going through what he thought was a massive failure in 2008, Vincent found himself stuck in a toxic cycle of anxiety and depression. As a person in recovery ever since, what did he learn on his journey of recovery?

Speaker #2 - Melissa Tan
After weeks of insomnia, she finally sought professional help, only to realise there were more deep-seated issues. Having been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, what are some things that she had overcome and what those that she still struggles with?
