MISTER SINGAPORE 2013
Mister Yishun Edwin Heng can stand tall and proud when he captured the title of Mister Singapore 2013 on October 26, 2013 at RELC Auditorium in RELC International Hotel. The resident from the northern estate of the country is a business management student at Singapore Management University. Edwin was raised in a household where he was subjected to financial difficulties and bullying, and as a result, hopes to use his title to advocate for children that have been exposed to similar situations. The environment that he grew up in taught him how to be self-sufficient and emotionally strong, and allowed him to realize the importance of being a role model to his peers. Edwin made the conscious decision to be an active volunteer with the Teck Ghee CC's Youth Executive Committee (YEC) and has organized several activities for the low income families in the Teck Ghee community. Edwin went on to represent Singapore at the 2013 Mister International Pageant on November 23, 2013 in Jakarta, Indonesia during which he finished among the Top 10 finalists.
