Equestrian and Veterinarian, 38
Competitive in show-jumping and dressage, Dr Roshni Selvam is Singapore’s only veterinary delegate for Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI), the regulating body for equestrian events. As founder of the Equine Veterinary Practice, she also assisted in the transfer of horses for the 2010 Youth Olympic Games. “Growing up with horses, I was distraught whenever one of the riding school horses had to be put down after an injury. I wanted to be a vet very early on so that I could learn how to treat and care for them,” says Selvam, who competed at the Prix St Georges level in Florida this year. She is currently training to represent Singapore in equestrian events at the 2015 SEA Games.
