New Face 2012 winner gives up modelling to teach kids

5 June 2013 / 3 years 4 months ago
While most would charge forward after winning a major modelling title, Sharin Keong (above), 21, signed on to be a childcare teacher instead.
Sharin, who won The New Paper New Face 2012, has been teaching at PCF Kebun Baru Sparkletots for two months after graduating from Ngee Ann Polytechnic with a diploma in early childhood education.
Even though she received an offer to move to Hong Kong and model there for three months, she preferred to teach.

She told The New Paper: “I just told myself maybe now is not the right time for me (to pursue modelling)."
