Currently, reading Chemistry at Imperial College London, UK.


"Being the one and only local full-time diploma that offers training in perfumery and cosmetic science, I was excited to explore into this relatively new field of study. As I grow with the course, I become more confident that I have made the right choice! Till today, I am intrigued by the underlying science that leads to brilliant innovations in perfumes, cosmetics and personal care. The three-years’ with DPCS is worth the effort in pursuing. Apart from equipping myself with relevant core knowledge and skills, I have also learnt to adopt Design Thinking to enhance creativity in product innovation. Most important of all, I have gained invaluable experiences in applied research through internships with renowned organisations such as Johnson & Johnson and Tokyo University of Technology. This memorable learning journey shall mark an important chapter of my life."
