Right after my “O” Levels, I had to think about my next steps. As I was curious about what the hospitality industry had to offer, I enrolled in SP’s Diploma in Hotel and Leisure Facilities Management (DHLFM). .
Overall, my experience with DHLFM in SP was a fun and enriching one. I enjoyed the many site visits with my classmates and found the tutorials helpful in applying what we learnt in lectures. All in all I learnt a lot about both the hotel and facilities management industries.
While the pressures and expectations felt during the course was immense, the constant encouragement from my mother, lecturers and friends kept me on track. With their support, I was able to keep myself focused on my goals.
The most rewarding experience I had involved my internship as a green consultant at my alma maters - Marsiling Primary School and Chung Cheng High School. I got to see and work with my former teachers and vice-principals no longer just as a student but as a professional. I learnt a lot about environmental management in schools and even conducted a workshop to teach students about water and energy conservation.
This August, I begin a new chapter in my life in Nanyang Technological University (NTU) where I will be studying Philosophy. I look forward to whatever the future holds and aim to meet each challenge with diligence and positivity.
