How has your SMU scholarship benefitted you so far?

The Lee Kong Chian Scholarship Programme reduced my financial burden by covering tuition fees and providing grants for student exchange and OCSP. I went on a study trip to London, where I got the chance to network with experts in different industries and visited companies such as Bloomberg, Visa and World Wildlife Fund (WWF). I was also given the opportunity to give back to society, by embarking on local and overseas community service projects to help those in need. Through the organization and execution of these projects, I was able to develop my leadership skills and ability to work well in a team.

Most importantly, through the scholarship, I met many seniors and friends who gave me great support, guidance and career advice along the way, making my university journey a much smoother and memorable one.

Favourite spot on the SMU campus:

The dance studio. Whenever I enter the studio and go for a dance class, I am able to drop all my worries and express myself through music and movement for that few hours. After that, I always feel re-energized to continue studying.

What is a typical day at SMU for you?

For me, a typical day at school usually encompasses one or two lessons, multiple project meetings and time in the library. What makes the university experience here different is the bond that you share with your classmates, teammates and friends. In SMU, we spend a lot of time with our groups working on our projects and assignments. But we also have fun and understand each other better during the process. Whenever I head over to the library to study, I can be sure to find my friends studying there too.
