Asia Pacific Breweries Foundation Scholarship for Persons with Disabilities

  •  

    Born with brittle bone disease, Daniel Seah has had a history of multiple fractures and uses a wheelchair to ambulate. However, Daniel did not let his disability deter him from pursuing an education. In fact, it motivated him to work even harder.

     

    Daniel had many fractures since young

     

    Daniel’s dream was to join a socially responsible public-listed company as an accountant so that he could play a part in helping the company remain profitable and sustainable in the long term. His efforts paid off when he excelled in his accountancy studies at Singapore Polytechnic and thereafter pursued a Bachelor degree in Accountancy at the National Technological University. 

     

    Daniel's positive attitude helped alot in his educational journey

     

    Daniel was able to put his full focus on his studies as the Asia Pacific Breweries Foundation Scholarship for Persons with Disabilities helped in large part to alleviate the financial burdens in his pursuit of his dream. He is now a Consultant at one of Singapore’s ‘Big 4’ accounting firms, Ernst & Young.
