My name is Cai Jianxiong 蔡剑雄. On some platform, I am better known as Benjamin Alexander Cai.
I am a Singaporean, born and bred on this sunny island and have been living here for all my life. I don’t know how to introduce my history properly but if you ask me about each phase of my life, I always have interesting stories to share; for some reason, my life has been full of twist and turns – I have achieved many successes, as well as met many challenges, some that brought me to my knees but I got back up again. All these shaped me to be who I am today.
I usually come across as someone who leaves an impression, perhaps because of the values I hold and the decisions I make. Ultimately, what you need to know is that I am not someone that you can judge at first sight. I don’t fit well into stereotypes and you probably need to calibrate your views as we go along. There are however some traits about me that will never change – I am a change maker and I take initiatives to improve or optimise things. I am not afraid to do the right thing even when I have to do it alone and I believe in servant leadership. I also believe that I am quite dependable, trustworthy and able to get things done. To sum up, I probably fit in better in an era with knights and horses but the 21st centuary is fine for me either. And as you can tell, I like making jokes but I can be rather serious when it comes to work.
