A happy coincidence!

Ansel-Ryan Pg Expert

I usually show this slide as part of my Assembly Talk for Not In the Stars. It shows my children’s picture book Ryan the Playground Expert and how the character Ryan was inspired by a real life boy called Ansel Lim.

It was only after the Kuo Chuan Presbyterian Primary School Assembly Talk ended that I realised Ansel is a former student of the school ! I wonder if the teachers in the Hall recognised their Old Boy.

How would the school staff feel knowing that one of their students had inspired a local book? Well, I know I would continue to be inspired by Ansel. From him, I learn to appreciate life more, complain less and keep trying no matter how the odds are stacked against me.
