Shawn has been an active community volunteer in Taman Jurong Constituency over the last 10 years. He has dedicated most of his free time to mentoring children from low-income homes, helping former prison inmates to restart their lives, and finding ways to empower other disadvantaged residents. He also led efforts to give residents opportunity to participate in the arts, serving as chairman of Community Arts and Culture Club for several years.
Shawn learnt about life and the importance of hard work early, spending most weekends helping his parents at a small family shop. He decided to work after he finished his schooling, and joined the Air Force as a pilot trainee, where he served for 19 years.
Along the way, he was sent to the United States Air Force Academy, where he graduated with a degree in aeronautical engineering with distinction and was the first non-American to become the top graduate in military performance. He was also sent by the SAF to attend a command preparation course at the Defence Language and Education Centre in Indonesia where he learnt Bahasa Indonesia and became the top air force graduate.
Shawn is married and has 2 young children, who love cycling at Jurong Lake Park and drinking iced Milo.
