Sophie and her guide dog, Orinda, is GDS’s seventh guide dog team. They were successfully paired in the beginning of 2020. Sophie is a para-swimmer for Team Singapore, and employed as a Marketing Specialist at Toyota Motor Asia Pacific (TMAP).
Her condition of cone rod dystrophy has not stopped her from juggling both music and sports, and she competed in the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.
Hong Sen was born with Retinal Dystrophy; he only has the perception of light and shadow, and can differentiate colours to a certain extent. After his doctor suggested for him to get a Guide Dog, he explored the possibility. The strong desire to live a truly independent life propelled his decision to get a Guide Dog. In 2017, he was paired and matched with his guide dog, Clare.
Today, Hong Sen holds a Degree in Management and Digital Innovation and is working at GDS as an IT Consultant and Trainer where he trains and equips other visually impaired clients with skills on using assistive technology to use mobile phones and other devices.
Dennis developed Retinitis Pigmentosa, having only light perception. As his vision gradually worsened over the years, it became increasingly difficult for him to function independently. The biggest challenge was when he lost the ability to move around on his own.
Dennis was paired with his guide dog, Melba in February 2014. While being blind was not by choice, he feels fortunate to have been given the opportunity to have a wonderful guide dog like Melba
