News is catered. It can exist to inspire young people, promote trending events or shared information on a subject the public is invested in. Not inherently bad but it can become formulaic. Sometimes, dangers and issues are only brought to light when society is already concerned about them when there exists an opportunity to bring these problems into the light beforehand.
That’s where we come in. Some of the issues will never be brought to the light through more well-known platforms. So instead, we encourage you to join us and find what’s hidden.


Our founder

Stephen Tay has been working on In the Shade after graduating from Millennia Institute in 2019. When not working on the website or writing articles, he attends local Model United Nation Conferences or volunteers at his secondary school’s Scout troop. Whilst waiting for National Service, he hopes to spend his time fruitfully by spreading information not well-known to the public.
