The Young Achiever of the Year is Mr Muhamad Ridhwan Ahmad, 30, Singapore's first professional boxing world champion. The awards celebrate outstanding contributions made by Malay/Muslims. "They put their minds to the tasks before them, be it a career in banking or boxing," PM Lee said, noting that Mr Shaari rose to the top of his profession by working his way up from a junior private banker, while Mr Ridhwan worked many odd jobs, from waiter to deliveryman, in pursuit of his dream. "They put in the hours and the effort, made their mistakes and took their hits, but picked themselves up each time because they knew one day they would get it right."
