By the time he was in Primary 5, Benny Se Teo was packing opium and running the packets to his father’s opium den in Chinatown. At 15, he bought a straw of heroin and his troubles truly began.
In jail after his umpteenth arrest, he decided to get clean and stay clean. This is Benny’s story—of how his faith and the faith his friends placed in him, turned him from a hard-core heroin addict into a restaurant boss. But it is more than a story of a wasted youth—it is also a primer for young people who have the idealism and drive to start businesses that can help society and make the world a kinder place.
