April is the youngest McDonald's General Manager in Singapore. Ever since she was young, she has wanted to be a leader.

"I’m proud to say McDonald’s is helping me achieve that dream," she says.
 

McDonald's supported April to achieve her educational goals 

A few years ago, when she was working as a crew member at a McDonald’s restaurant in Singapore, she was sponsored for a Business Practice diploma.

April was eager to earn her diploma, but studying and taking exams as a working adult was very challenging.

"There were many times I felt like giving up and focusing only on work. In the end, though, the support I received from my mentors and my McDonald’s restaurant helped me achieve my educational goals. When I got my diploma, it was the happiest day of my life," she explains.

Joining McDonald's has been life-changing for April

Now, April is the youngest General Manager in Singapore, responsible for more than 100 crew members and 10 managers.

She is also working toward becoming a Business Consultant by taking part in the McDonald’s Restaurant Leadership Program.  

"Joining McDonald’s has been life-changing for me, and I hope to pay it forward by encouraging other restaurant workers to pursue their educations and hone their leadership skills," she says. 

"It’s empowering to have achieved success at a young age, and I want others to know they can do this, too."


Join a company that helps you achieve your career goals

If, like April, you choose to build a career with McDonald’s, then their training, education and leadership development programs can take you to the highest levels in the organization or with McDonald's Franchisees.
