Parents are never shy when it comes to capturing special moments with their mobile phones. However, when we called for entries for the “I’m Proud of You” contest, we received an overwhelming response.
The videos that were shortlisted fulfilled the criteria set by the organisers of which were for originality, overall presentation, creativity, and it had to be appropriate to the “I’m Proud of You” theme. Finally, videos were put up on Facebook for an online voting.
While most of the videos were heartwarming laugh-out-loud moments, it was the capturing of the Champs spontaneous moment that won our hearts.
Michelle Yeo, Champ Jovan Teo – Go for Gold!
Winner Michelle Teo who submitted her champ’s winning entry, could not have found a better opportunity to share her happiness. Jovan may be small built, but he makes it up with determination and a competitive spirit. Realising his potential, his swimming coach focused on strengthening his butterfly stroke; the most challenging stroke in swimming, when he showed mastery in it.
For his efforts, he won gold in his very first age-group competition, elating his family and friends.
Jovan’s ambition is to be the Chief of Police Force; perhaps we will see him winning more swimming medals as he works toward that dream.
His mother Michelle Teo says, “Parent’s encouragement and compliments mean the world to a child. By letting them know that we are proud of them, it reinforces that they are doing it right and steer them in the right direction. It is also a strong motivation for them to achieve more success!”
Good luck to Jovan for being an inspiration to all.
Teo Yeow Tze, Champ Titus Peh – I know my ABCs at just 2.5 months
It was very challenging for mommy Teo Yeow Tze, as her Champ Titus would clamp up everytime he sees his mommy recording him. Luck was on her side one day as Titus was in his element and his mommy secretly whipped out her phone- in time to capture her young Champ saying his ABCs like a pro. Titus tickled us pink every time we watch him, and the judges were impressed.
Angeline Chang, Champ Lucas Ng – Singing Majulah Singapura – loud and proud
For 3rd prize winner champ Lucas Ng, his mommy Angeline Chang was amazed and proud that her young Champ, a toddler of less than 36 months is able to sing Singapore’s National anthem in such a clear and succinct voice. May Lucas continue to wow us and go on to an even bigger stage in future.
