Why is your NYR your NYR? 
I love the ocean but the thought of fishes coming into contact with my skin scares me however, when I see photos that my friends have captured when they go diving… It makes me forget my fears and want to experience another world with my own eyes. I’ve also always had this crazy idea of having my wedding underwater so for it to happen, I need to get a PADI license! I’ve been trying to quit smoking the last 2 years. I successfully quit for 3 months in 2013 but it didn’t last long… come 2015, I’ll be 25… I’ll be a quarter a century! I think it’s time to really take my health seriously and think about the future.

What is your NYR?

To learn to let things go, to learn to be more patient, to learn to be better at adapting to new environment or situations.

Why is your NYR your NYR?

Unlike the majority of the graduates of 2014, I did not get a proper and stable job right after graduation. I was in a midst of confusion as to what I would like to do as a job. I decided to take a break for a few months and these few months have become a learning journey for me. Not only did I learn more about my strengths, but also, what I am passionate about. It is a route of self- discovery. Of course, I did learn more about my flaws. They have caused me injuries, regrets and conflicts in the past months of 2014.Thus,I have sorted them out and listed them as my NYR. I hope to become a better person in 2015 for myself and for my loved ones.

Name: Samuel Low

Age: 24

What is your NYR?

 My NYR is for me to experience new things that I have never tried before, such as traveling with friends and taking on different part time jobs.

Why is your NYR your NYR?
It’s my NYR because I am going to graduate soon and I foresee myself holding a full time job after I graduate. In the meantime, I want to try on different things while I have the time, so I can have a wider perspective of the world. In this way I can develop my own personal thoughts on certain issues and activities and these experiences will shape me to be a better person, to be a better friend and son.

Because I just realized I’m not a teenager anymore. I’m turning 30 soon and I should stop living off my parents (too much)! And so I can save enough to return to Tomorrowland every year.

I’ve just finished NS, and having stagnated for 2 years, I figure it’s time to roll up my sleeves, get to work, and see the world. After all, I’m not going to get any younger!
