With the belief that everyone has a purpose in life and that it can only be fulfilled in relation to others, Angie Chen entered the field of social services as she feels that her “actions will create a real and definitive impact on the lives of others.”
As a Programme Head with SUN-DAC, Angie’s job is to lead a team in managing the day-care centre and develop activities that serves to empower and dignify the lives of adults with varying intellectual disabilities.
Prior to this, she was an Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children (EIPIC) Manager, overseeing programmes catered for children with special needs. Through the interactions, it allowed her to see the challenges that her clients faced, resulting in her desire to play a bigger role to help them overcome their difficulties. She decided to join the Sun Ray scheme.
Angie also incorporated a reflective culture of valuing and dignifying the lives of her clients, caregivers and partners in SUN-DAC. Under her leadership, the programme activities became more meaningful and functional as it became more relevant to their clients’ needs too.
