Raw Diamonds

Raw Diamonds

She was once an ordinary teen. But a practical career decision led her on an extraordinary journey as a teacher. Set in an educational institution where some say “It’s The End, author Maggie Lai discovered that there was more to life in every teen she met in that place. Beyond every stare, sob, smile and laughter is a life intertwined with a bigger world of relationships, issues and possibilities; a world sometimes too complicated and confusing for the teen. Written in candid honesty, Raw Diamonds digs deep into the heart of the matter of not just the vocational teens’ life but that of caregivers’ too – the pain and struggles of being stuck in the mud of life; the joy and freedom of beaming at the peak. Raw Diamonds is a sweet reminder that we are all connected in some ways and we can all make an impact on a teen’s life – for good, and for the better. Truly, each and every teen – notwithstanding his or her vocation and background – is a precious diamond born and destined to shine – when we believe.

Our values are the daily beat to which we jive.

Our Story
Tusitala was born in 2010, with a focus on telling transmedia stories. We’re based in Singapore, perfectly poised to represent the breadth and depth of Asian content available in the region. With the world increasingly looking towards Asian stories, we’re both excited and proud to be where we are!

The name Tusitala harks to an island in Samoa, where author Robert Louis Stevenson spent the last years of his life. The locals of the island fondly nicknamed him Tusitala, which means storyteller. In our work, we embody the essence of a storyteller: using different mediums and techniques to deliver a powerful message to our audiences. Only, we take it a step further by introducing the exciting potential of technology.

Our logo is a kitsune – nine-tailed fox, native to Asian folklore and legend. In Chinese, Japanese and Korean folktales, the kitsune is an enchanted animal – magnetic, intelligent, powerful, and able to take human form. From the complexity of the symbolism, we derive simple principles that we stand for – potency, wisdom and creative rebellion.

(This creativity, we must disclose, often vanishes when determining where we should go for lunch each day)
