Enlisting into National Service is a big and emotional event in every Singaporean family’s life. To make it less daunting, I wanted to do my part by helping those out there.
Having an older brother doing NS just two years before, it was a bit easier for me. However, my heart went out to the thousands of boys who didn’t have anyone to guide them. The emotional ride one goes through to find relevant information on the internet is overwhelming and unsettling. Thus, the idea to create a one-stop destination for all NSFs and their families to find everything they need to know about National Service was born.
