At birth, Mary was given up for adoption. When she was two years old, her adoptive parents started noticing her deformity. She was then diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a genetic disease that weakens her muscles. At the age of six, Mary was sent to the Singapore Cheshire Home after her adoptive father met with an accident. It became challenging to take care of Mary.
According to Mary, 50+ years is a long time to be trapped in a body that cannot stand or walk. However, despite her severe disability, Mary is gifted with her creative hands. She is able to sew and make all sorts of exquisite handicrafts.
Mary has an ambition. She wishes to become a salesgirl. WISE fulfills her wish by sending her to Singapore Retail Institute to be trained as our Fashion Consultant. At WISE, Mary earns a salary and sales commission. Now, she has working colleagues like us. Mary used to admire people who work because she has never worked before. Lastly, she can work side by side with her husband, Jason, who helps to showcase the products while she does the selling.
Please visit Mary and Jason at the showroom and let the husband and wife team serve you with their passion for work.
