Award-winning film-makers and inspirational story-tellers from Singapore, Tay and Val, are living examples of dreamers who have cycled and travelled across the globe on project I Believe That Dreams Can Come True. Having set off in March 2010, they aimed to cycle/travel to as many countries as they can, walk into the lives of local people, and then document their personal stories about their dreams on videos. These videos are then posted on their website as short stories and shared with the world.
With the intention of One Dream Shared, Millions Inspired, their stories have inspired many to seek out their dreams and achieve them. On this epic journey, the duo has engaged countless people at hundreds of events, including TED talks to empower them - to do the things they truly want to do and be the person they truly want to be.
