Herbert Sim honored with the ’30 Under 30′ Award
Founder of WardrobeTrendsFashion, Herbert Sim, was honored by Oklahoma City University with the ’30 Under 30′ Award. The awards ceremony was held during the ‘All Alumni Weekend’ earlier in April. Herbert is the first and only Asian that made it into the Top 30 to be honored with this award so far.
It was unfortunate that Herbert was not able to make it for the awards ceremony in Oklahoma City, USA, as he was in Sydney, Australia, attending the 2016 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards ceremony where he received two Gold awards for ‘Innovation in Entertainment Websites’, and ‘Innovation in News Websites’.
Herbert shared about his experience in Oklahoma City University where he graduated with Bachelor of Arts (in Liberal Studies with concentration in Mass Communications) at a seminar in December 2015 in Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS) about the degree being the choice university programme to working world.
In August 2015, Herbert forged a partnership between WardrobeTrendsFashion and global charity organization, World Vision, as their media partner. World Vision is a global Christian relief, development and advocacy organisation dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. World Vision serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.
“Herbert has been a never-ending support to our organization, playing the important role of public relations as a media partner, creating awareness for poverty alleviation and child sponsorship programme,” Janice Evidente, Communications Division Manager at World Vision shared, “He has participated and contribute much in the assistance of children in their harsh circumstances. Herbert has brought in many people to donate and volunteer for the charity. His great positive attitude, dedication, are highly commendable.”
