Stop going after Shawn Huang. Last time Temasek also got elite change her name before

A Singaporean born and bred with AT




After she appeared at a Pasir Ris- Punggol GRC grassroots event earlier this month, People's Action Party candidate Sun Xueling, 36, was targeted by xenophobic netizens who thought she was a Chinese national because of the hanyu pinyin spelling of her name.

The third-generation Singaporean, who is also known as Soon Sher Rene, was born here and raised by her grandmother who encouraged her to volunteer and help the needy. She met her Beijing- born husband while studying in London. He became a Singapore citizen six years ago.

Soft-spoken and articulate, she said: "What's important is he took an active step to become a Singaporean. He was attracted to me and also by the values and dynamism we have here."


She hopes to change the minds of those who are less than welcoming of new citizens, saying: "They want to become Singaporeans because they love this place and want a role in building the country."

The investment banker has a young daughter and hopes to push for more support measures for parents. Her political career has been more than a decade in the making.

As an undergraduate, she started volunteering at Buona Vista and, in 2004, aged 25, she spoke at the PAP's 50th anniversary rally.

Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean revealed the party considered fielding her in 2011. But she was working in Hong Kong and thinking of having children.

Ms Sun said she was engaged in party activities even before 2011. Of her time in grassroots activities, she said: "It has made me a much better person. When you try to solve other people's problems, your own dim in significance."

Is it cause her AT husband cannot pronounce her name?
How is that integrating into Singapore?

no big deal leh

her chinese characters didnt change just change the english alphabetical phrasing of it to make it more easily pronounceable

i think is something most of the locals chinese, or at least me, face due to the english phrasing of the dialect pronunciation of the Chinese characters

I imagine that it's a strategic decision for the future. If she wants to move to Beijing or retire there with her husband, it'll be easier with this name and spelling.

Ts don't be stupiak la. Change from dialect to hanyu pinyin easier to pronounce what. Even Chinese can't pronounce it, u think minorities able to pronounce it easily? As for irkiwang is different.... Change entire name. Why did he not change when he was inside rsaf? Why did he not change when he was parade commander?
