Yip Pin Xiu

Para-athlete and nominated member of parliament
Location: Singapore

If this high-achieving backstroke swimmer can win three golds at the Paralympic Games since she started to train competitively while dealing with a genetic disorder that breaks down the muscles, you don't really have an excuse to give up on your relatively piddly goals. This confident young lady says she is unable to see her own physical limits. After all, muscular dystrophy did not stop Yip Pin Xiu from setting two world records, or becoming a nominated member of parliament in 2018. In her roles, she continues to advocate for more “conversations of inclusion, where we get to know an individual as a person and not a label”. Word.
