9 August 1965, Singapore became an independent country after separation from Malaysia. Our prime minister, Lee Kuan Yew and his administration faced problems such as massive unemployment, housing, lack of land and natural resources. During his term, he and his administration curbed the problems faced and raised the standard of living for Singaporean. Our economic infrastructure was developed, racial tension was eliminated and an independent national defence system was created. Singapore evolved from a developing world nation to first world nation towards the end of the 20th century. We may be a little red dot but we stand tall in the world. Singapore has come a long way to become what it is today. Onward Singapore! Majulah Singapura!

P.S. This is a video that was made by my team to celebrate our nation’s birthday. Back then we do not have the resources to create a video, so I seek your understanding for the poor quality of the video.
