Chin Wang is a retired senior and a Cyberguide tutor at RSVP Singapore – The Organisation of Senior Volunteers. Frustrated with the fact that she had to depend on her family members to log onto Skype to communicate with her daughter, Chin Wang set her mind to master all manners of technology. Within a year, she has earned herself a Certiport Digital Literacy Certification. She is now so proficient in computers that she volunteers at RSVP to help other seniors overcome the same digital divide she once faced. In doing so, she hopes to close the inter-generational gaps that isolates many senior citizens in our society today.
Chin Wang embodies the true spirit of active ageing with her confidence in stepping out of the comfort zone. From her, we learn how we can embrace every obstacle as an opportunity to learn.
