Michael Ngu is an architect and President and CEO of Architects 61. When he was 5-years old, he contracted polio and became paralysed in both legs. In the recent inaugural Goh Chok Tong Enable Awards on 3 July 2019, he was one of the 3 Achievement Awardees and had the honor to engage with both ESM Goh Chok Tong and President Halimah Yacob.
They chatted extensively about how many Singaporeans have benefited from the support of the community, and how they can pay it forward and also contribute to Enable and Inspire the community. President Halimah encouraged him to participate in the President's Challenge. He shared that he has participated in President's Challenge initiatives under President Nathan's period and affirmed her that he would be on the lookout to participate again - and hence, he is participating in Relay Majulah! It has been challenging for a disabled person to achieve and gain acceptance in society. Michael hopes that his achievement can be an inspiration to others.
