Hi! I am Mikhail Wee from Changkat Changi Secondary School. I am currently serving as an Associate Member (AM) as I have the passion to nurture my juniors to become better leaders. I also wanted to be more exposed to leadership experiences in the NCC and be closer to my friends and Teacher Officers. The quote above reminds me that with passion and hard work I will be rewarded fairly.
I feel proud when I see my juniors become the person they want to be, one who is confident and who takes on good leadership qualities. This tells me that I have done my job successfully. Grooming a cadet is not an easy feat, there are challenges to consider such as their family background, commitments and certain habits that they possess. Hence, it is important to remember that time and patience is essential before you can help your juniors bloom.
By continuing to serve with my school unit, I get to use my skillsets in guiding my juniors on how to run unit trainings and organise logistical requirements for our Annual Unit Camp. I feel that it is important for a senior to provide such guidance to help them see that by being organised things can run smoothly."Every great dream begins with a dreamer.

The wrestling workshop for NCC cadets from sec 2 and sec 3 was conducted by the Wrestling Federation of Singapore on wrestling techniques. It served to be a crash course to the basics of wrestling to enhance our fitness. It also served to spark our interest in the sport of Olympic wrestling. The WFS-NCC workshop was conducted on 11th August 2017, 11/8/17.
I learnt patience and that practice makes perfect, as I could not perfect the moves immediately. However with guidance from the trainers, I was able to complete my task. I learnt some self-defence moves, such as a takedown when engaged in a wrestling lock. This would be effective as this move can be used against smaller or larger targets attempting to attack me. In doing so, I have learnt a move that would be sufficient to protect myself in certain situations.
I can now put my skills to better use as a cadet, as I will now be able to protect myself. I can also take the new values that I learnt to heart, as lessons. In addition, I learned that Singapore athletes are not easily trained by just anyone, and that they follow a regiment. I also noticed that Singaporean Athletes visit each other to gain guidance, or to just see how their counterparts or peers are doing.Cadet Aldric Foo,
