Talking With Unwavering Dedication

“Celebrate their abilities and not disadvantage them with their disabilities.”

WomenTalk would like to wish all mothers a Happy Mother’s Day!

We had the opportunity to speak to Soek Ying, Ryan’s mother and the founder of Mustard Tree. Ryan was diagnosed with autism at the age of two and Soek Ying eventually set up Mustard Tree.Com.Sg​, a page which she dedicates to Ryan and details their journey together. She is also working to help other differently abled individuals acquire work skills through Mustard Tree.

Mustard Tree also retails the products made by these artisans, head over to or their physical store at #02-16, Ng Teng Fong General Hospital to purchase them.

If you found this Sheroine’s story meaningful, please share it so that we can make more.

Soek Ying is the mother to Ryan, who was diagnosed with autism. She is also the founder of Mustard Tree, which aims to enable differently abled individuals to acquire industry standard skills and have better employment prospects.
