I am Mdm Lee Chin Yen, currently Principal of agape Little Uni. @ Cecil. I have been with Agape for almost 18 years and I have grown so much as a person, as well as a leader in these years. Agape is a big family, though there are 12 centres, we are still 1 agape! Being one of the seniors in this family, I want to help new staff members find their sense of belonging and their sense of purpose in working with children, colleagues and people around them. Over the years, I went through many ups and downs at work and in life. The management and staff in agape have helped me, cheered me along and motivated me to move on. Most importantly, they have touched me with their unconditional love. This love is felt by the children, and my fellow colleagues. I am proud to be a part of the Agape family and I am grateful to be learning to love, staying faithful, sincere, living in harmony and having fun in life. All because of Agape! I love you Agape! I love all of you in Agape! Let us continue to work together like brothers and sisters to elicit out the best of each one for the best of the children under our care. Thank you all for making the difference! Cheers!”
