About Cheng Mun

Tell us a little bit about yourself
I’m a student in Singapore currently awaiting admission to junior college. I live in a apartment with seven people: my grandma, my aunt, my two younger brothers, and my parents. Most of my time is spent on the internet, reading, watching and listening to things, and I also enjoy knitting, crocheting, live music, and nighttime long walks or long rides on public transport. I am easily excitable and also a massive klutz, which has made for quite a number of accidents, and which explains why I largely use disposable cameras – there’s not much to destroy!

What one thing are you proud of so far in your 17 years?
Surrounding myself with so many people to love, and being able to do so much with them.

What one piece of advice would you give you 10 year old self?
Stop worrying about what everything thinks of you and just enjoy what you have now because school/life will never be this easy or fun ever again.
Also, your english teacher will only start coming to school in dresses next year, when you’re no longer in her class, so maybe you and your friends should stop bugging her about wearing a skirt/dress and listen carefully to what she has to say, because she is one of the best people you will ever meet.

What challenges do you think you’ll face as you approach 100 years old?
I’m quite a stick in the mud, so I think I might have trouble keeping up with and adapting to the numerous changes the world will go through, especially since everything’s progressing so quickly.
