Meet Yazid, Contestant No.2 with a Big Dream

Yazid was born in Malaysia with a big dream but faced a lot of adversity in his life.

Last year, he came face to face with the biggest nightmare in his life to date. After leaving Malaysia to work in Singapore to provide his wife and children with a better life, his wife decided to divorce him while he was working in Singapore because she felt that she could not take a long- distance relationship.

He faced a hard time, and suffered depression.

Being alone in Singapore without any kin, caused him to indulge in alcohol and he lost almost 10 kg in one month. Then one day, he managed to talk to his kids. His daughter’s words woke him up from his downward spiral, “Daddy, I love you, and I will always love you, and you only can love me because I love you”

He then realised that although his marriage had ended, his life had not. He had come to Singapore to provide a better life for his family, and he still needed to fight for his children no matter what.

He started to change his lifestyle and found healthier ways to release his depression.

When he saw the opportunity to join Mr. World Singapore 2021, Yazid seized it as his chance to prove to himself and his family that he has walked out of his darkness and now wants to shine.

Believe in God, we have plans, but God also has His plans, and He’s the best planner. Accept life as it is and don’t lose hope because there is always a rainbow after the rain.
