Lawrence Wong told the 550 pre-university students from 30 schools to consider the impact their lives can have on others, like Lee Kuan Yew.

Several questions about foreigners in the workforce, flaws of Singapore’s Meritocracy and social work were also posted to Lawrence Wong. The mainstream media however did not make a report of his replies.
