Lee Kuan Yew Reflection (Sakshi)

How was Mr Lee as a person?

He was passionate about Singapore. Everywhere he went, he was living and breathing Singapore. All he had on his mind was Singapore. Even when he was not in Singapore politics, he still cared for Singapore and was always worrying about the future of Singapore. Everywhere he went, he would find ways to improve the city further no matter what he was doing.For example, even when he was rather bereaved from the death of his wife, he still made an effort to be strong in front of others and never gave up hope no matter what.  Mr Lee was determined to make Singapore his success which was why Singapore changed so much because of him.

What are some of his values, beliefs and convictions that guided his actions and had an impact on his decisions?

People held him in high regard which was also why everyone listened to him and changed things/ did things the way he wanted them to be done because they respected him and they knew that he was someone who always knew what is the best choice to make regardless he was in power or not.

What are his key contributions to Singapore?

From having no security for Singapore, not a proper education system for Singapore and not even having a politically stable Singapore, he managed to make Singapore grow in creative ways. One of his main contributions was the cleanup of the singapore river and also also reducing the blow to Singapore's economy when the British troops pulled out of Singapore( due to Mr Lee's good friendship with the British)
