We’ve got some good news to share! Forbes Magazine has released its famed Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia feature for 2022 — and a number of Singaporeans made it on the list! The regional edition of Forbes 30 Under 30 features a total of 300 young trailblazers hailing from various countries in Asia.
This year, there are 10 categories in total: Entertainment and Sports, Consumer Technology, Finance and Venture Capital, The Arts (Art & Style, Food & Drink), Industry Manufacturing & Energy, Enterprise Technology, Social Impact, and Healthcare & Science.
Annette Lee and more got a spot on Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia list
Among those that landed on the list is Singapore native Annette Lee who is a singer-songwriter, filmmaker and influencer. The 1992-born talent is most popular for her comedic YouTube videos such as the relatable show Glowing Up and comedy music series The Ann & Ben Show.
Other Singaporeans that made the list include 24-year-old badminton player Loh Kean Yew who is the current world champion for the men's singles category. He won the title at the 2021 BWF World Championships and is noted to be the first Singaporean to do so.
Singaporean fashion designer Grace Ling is also on the list in recognition of her eponymous label’s innovative work to produce zero-waste sustainable fashion pieces using 3D technology, CAD software and CGI.
Aside from Annette Lee and Loh Kean Yew, most entrants from Singapore who made it to the list are part of the Financial and Venture Capital categories, which is unsurprising considering that The Little Red Dot is one of Southeast Asia’s most important financial hubs.
Outside of Singapore, familiar personalities in Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia list include Squid Game actress HoYeon Jung, members of K-pop band Aespa, and Olympic gold medalist freestyle skier Eileen Gu.
