Shirley Too, a civil engineer by training, stopped working to treat her illness (stomach cancer). When she got better, she found it difficult to get back to work, as the technology in the construction industry was moving way too fast.
She became despondent, and the situation was made worse by the sudden death of her husband. At the time when she felt like giving up, she received a wake-up call from her son. Determined to carve out a second career and rebuild her life, she attended the Workplace Safety and Health course offered by NTUC LearningHub.
Today, she is a Safety Officer who inspires others with her life story.
