Peace Talks – Stella Tan

In our interview series, entitled “Peace Talks”, we speak to peacemakers with different backgrounds and life stories, and ask them to share their thoughts and reflections. 

This edition of “Peace Talks” features Stella Tan from Yishun Town Secondary School:


Q: How was your overall experience at the Peacemakers Conference 2018?

Overall, it was a really interesting and engaging experience. For me, it was an opportunity to gain new knowledge and to grow as an individual. I didn’t expect much from this Conference, but I learned so many things about myself and mediation, and met so many amiable and interesting people. It was a very rewarding experience that I’m very grateful for, and I’m pretty sure that future participants will enjoy this conference as much as I did!


Q: What was the most unforgettable part of the Conference for you?

The most unforgettable part of the Conference was getting to know and bond with different people. As everyone had differing views and methods on how to conduct a mediation, it was really interesting to see them learn and try their best. I also got the chance to get to know and communicate with people from different schools, and forge friendships that I wouldn’t have had if I hadn’t participated in this Conference.


Q: What is an example of you applying what you learned in the Conference in real life?

There was a conflict with two of my closest friends. It wasn’t an easy thing, as both of them are people I that I deeply care for. I learnt how to to listen to their thoughts and respond appropriately, and to think in their points of view.


Q: If you could give one piece of advice to the incoming participants of the Peacemakers Conference 2019, what would you tell them?

The most important thing is to have fun while also learning, and open your mind and heart to learn and meet new people, and you’ll definitely have a fulfilling experience!! :^>
