Tan Siok Sun
Born in an Indonesian town, Siok Sun was one of a few women working at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the 1970s. After slaving at JP Morgan and Standard Chartered Bank for ten years, motherhood meant flexible hours as a headhunter, which afforded her the time to author Goh Keng Swee: A Portrait (2007). She retired from Singapore Management University after eight years in the President’s Special Advisor Office. In W!LD RICE, Siok Sun, a frustrated actress at heart, has rekindled her passion for the arts and will move mountain and earth to secure an iconic theatre for Singapore.
