Today’s JaGaCorner is all about showing appreciation to security guards that keep your neighbourhood safe.
Security guards play an important role in all neighbourhoods. Some of the most visible roles are to control visitors’ admittance and conduct security patrols regularly. However, like many others who work in the service industry, they receive very little credit or recognition for their contributions.
In fact, most people don’t even know their guards despite meeting and greeting them almost every day. We’ve decided to make it a conscious decision a little while ago to talk to the guards and learn more about them when we conduct guard training for them.
Read on to find out some interesting stories we’ve learned about them, and why we think they are genuinely amazing!
Meet Noor, a night-shift security guard. Big fan of old Taiwan dramas and Chinese songs, and a great hustler working on getting a degree in Islamic Studies.
Noor goes to classes after his night shift ends at 8.00am and pays for his own tuition fees. He took up a security guard job as it is one of the few jobs that allow him to work at odd hours, which in turn accommodates his study schedule. Despite all the things on his plate, he still enjoys life as is and jammed to Chinese songs with our JaGaCrew while we were there.
We were genuinely inspired by Noor, his grit, work ethic, and burning desire to realise his dreams. We wish him good luck in all his future endeavors! 💪🏻
Chris (JaGaCrew) and Nathan
Nathan is a proud father of 7 children. He is the sole breadwinner of the family, supporting not just his family of 9, but also his elderly mother. While it is a challenge to raise such a big family, Nathan took care of each of them well – even after he lost his right arm to an unfortunate accident around 20 years ago.
Nathan is an inspiration to us all. Despite his disability, he has persevered and currently living his life to the fullest. He is now the head of security in one of JaGaApp’s sites.
We hope that life brings more blessings and opportunities to Nathan in his upcoming path 🙏🏻
We used to do this often with our site visits and rollout but due to the pandemic, the effort had to stop temporarily. We look forward to kickstart this exercise again, so in the meantime, let us hear some of your neighbourhood stories!
Tell us stories about your neighbourhood or other stories you know as we love to hear them, especially from our resident users. Write a post, snap photos, or create short clips on social media and tag us @jagaapp and hashtag #myneighbourhoodstory.
We might feature them on our social media to inspire more people 🥰
We hope this inspires more people to appreciate their guards such as treating them decently or thanking them sincerely whenever they’ve done a good job.
After all, a neighbourhood’s loveliness is cultivated by the people that live within it.
