  • How to prepare yourself for your own ageing experience, as well as deal with ageing in your families
  • How to listen, communicate and interview with empathy
  • How to write narratives that guide your self-reflection 

From July to September, you will be going back into your community (anywhere in Singapore!) and finding 3 seniors to befriend and form friendships with. You will be committing a minimum of 4 hours per month for each senior to befriend, interview and write.
