Singapore Poly's Built Environment student Cliff Tan met the Queen of England because of his love for photography. In 2006, he won the the first prize in the Commonwealth Youth Photo Competition and the Queen presented the prize to him and saw his winning picture. Although he only spent mere minutes with Her Majesty, Cliff said it was unforgettable. He got his first camera from his grandmother when he was 15 and that inspired him to take on photography. His outstanding performance in photography made him a recipient of the SP's Model Student Award this year.
