Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong: “We want our young to think independently, to explore with confidence, and to pursue their passions… Our people should feel free to express diverse views, pursue unconventional ideas, or simply be different.”
For many, this impassioned plea for a new generation and an open society by Mr. Lee at his swearing-in was unexpected, to say the least. For 11 schoolgirls, it was welcomed but late and a tad unnecessary. Over the past two years, they have pursued their passion, thought independently, and expressed unconventional ideas. In this book, they bare their soul on relationships and regrets, desire and discovery, childhood and comedy. Uncut is their compelling collection of poetry, prose and photography.
“I have read the girls’ creations with joy and amazement. Unique, distinctive, full of pain and emotion; their words and photographs tell a thousand words—and more.”
—Dr. Pauline Sim Li Pang
