In conjunction with our ‘man in the mirror’ theme for the November issue (featuring a dashing Nicholas Hoult on the cover), we invited 18 of Singapore’s movers and shakers, industry leaders, change makers, and just all round great folk, to share their nuggets of wisdom with us. Gold.
But we didn’t just saddle up to these personalities and ask: “Hey, could you summarise your life lessons into one concise phrase that we can share with our readers?” Goodness, no. We have more creative muscle than that, dear chaps. Rather, we asked this motley crew of Singaporeans two key questions: first, what would they tell their 12-year-old selves; and second, what do they see (or tell themselves) when they look in the mirror? Are they asking themselves to change their ways? And no message could have been any clearer? If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and then make change? *Yee hee! Grabs crotch. Moonwalks off stage.*
As you peek into the stories behind the portrait (intimately captured on the new Huawei Mate 20 Pro), allow their insights to show you more of them, and perhaps in the process, more of the (wo)man in your mirror.
