As a teen, Kate Yong was bullied by girls who constantly belittled her. Mentally affected, she vowed never to feel so powerless again. In 2010, she discovered her love for deejaying and performing, and decided to be a full-time DJ, hungry to prove her worth. As ‘DJ Tinc’, Kate quickly gained respect and fans, which made her feel empowered, unlike her teen years.
But when COVID-19 hit, all live venues were forced to close. Kate’s income crippled, and she fought to raise her 3-month-old baby as a single mum. Hitting rock bottom, she did something she had never done before – “I said a prayer with all my heart, asking God to show me I’m not alone.”
Seconds after her prayer, Kate got a text and call from a person she barely knew from 6 years ago. The man told Kate that God wanted her to know that “I am with you; you are not alone.” She broke down, touched by the miraculous timing of the message.
Over time, Kate returned to deejaying with her new faith in God. And in 2022, she became the first-ever DJ to perform at a National Day Parade. She thanks God for slowly opening her heart to His love.
“Bullies and chasing power don’t define me. God gives me true peace and purpose as a mum and DJ.”
