"Aaron Lee Soon Yong" is a Singaporean prize-winning poet who writes in English.

Aaron began writing poetry during his days at Raffles Institution, a secondary school in Singapore where he befriended other students who would also eventually go on to become published Singaporean writers. By 1990, he had, along with other ex-school mates, Jonathan Kuan Wei Han, Tong Jo Tze, Alvin Pang and Jeffrey Lim, interested a Singapore publisher, VJ Times, in the publication of an anthology of poems contributed by the five writers. This collection, In Search of Words, was published in 1991.

Lee's first collection of poems, A Visitation of Sunlight, was named one of the best books of 1997 by The Straits Times. The collection was well received and played a part in a late 1990s resurgence of interest in Singapore poetry centred on a new generation of Singapore poets.

In 1999, the title poem of his book was selected for the National Arts Council Singapore/National Arts Council’s Poems on the Move programme, a national initiative to bring poetry to the masses on public transport.

Lee’s work has been anthologised in such publications as Rhythms: a Millennial Anthology of Poetry (Singapore), the New Straits Times (Malaysia), Anglistik (Germany), and Fifty on 50 (Singapore).

He understood his economic situation. That's part of his work ethic. He knows how Stephanie struggled to get him some shoes. Part of her sacrifice drove him. He talks about repaying his mom.

We've seen some good things from him from Day One. His route-running is good. He's getting better, but he's not where we think he can be yet. He hasn't taken it to the end zone yet. He's going to get better as we go down the stretch, but I'm happy with what he's done so far.

He can run, but he can't cut. He knows what we're doing, so there's no rush and some other guys who need it are getting reps.

Once he was in custody, an ambulance was immediately called because of his bizarre behavior, his nudity and his sweating.

Any death is tragic and our condolences are extended to Mr. Lee and his family, ... We regret his death as with any death.

When you see him smile, you really don't know what he's gone through to get to that point emotionally and socially, because there was a lot of anger and disappointment. The most phenomenal thing about the whole story is he entered the University of Washington as a regular student. The basketball will take care of itself.

He was Tased multiple times. Understand that when the probes go out and attach to the body, you can pull the trigger more than once, resulting in more than one Tase per probe discharge.

Allen's a very smart player. He's what I would call a street-smart player. He knows where he has to be.

The African proverb, 'It takes a village to raise a child' - that speaks volumes about where the kids I grew up with are today.

They're not that fast. They're not burners.

We need the passenger airlines.

I would say half of their routes are deep. We need them to run deep, catch it, and then do something after the catch. That would really help us open it up for the other guys.

Victory Stadium, I'm surprised it's not No. 1. It tells me that the people who are in position to effect a huge paradigm shift are the same people - the same type of people - in position 50 or 60 years ago.

When people talk about game speed, they're talking about a player understanding what he has to do. If you're 4.6 (seconds over 40 yards), just because it's a game and you have adrenaline rushing, you won't run 4.4. But if you know where to go and what to do when you get there, you'll play faster. You won't hesitate. These guys know what to do, so they're playing faster.
