Nur Erynna binte Muhammad Noh Iskandar (8, Rainbow Centre Yishun Park School [Woodlands])
This happy portrait of women in Singapore across the generations is a thumbs-up to women everywhere! “Girls” depicts the Samsui women from China who helped in the construction of many of the island’s brick buildings, a woman celebrating tradition in ethnic costume, and the modern girl of today. This tribute to the contribution of women to nation-building by young Nur Erynna is a foretaste of her own girl power. Watch out, world!
