Class of 2019
Swan & Maclaren Gold Medal
I developed my love for drawing in Secondary 3 after I took art as a subject. My teacher was very patient and guided me through every art classes. He knew that I was new and have a keen interest in art. After my “O” levels, I realized that I have a strong passion towards art and design, thus I decided to join DID.
It was indeed tough when I first join DID. I have to adapt to the hectic Polytechnic life. It is a life filled with submission guidelines and endless submission schedules. It was a big change for me but I did not give up.
As I progress through DID, there were many milestones, with constantly different expectations and new scope of works. I need to have good time management, perseverance and determination. And most importantly, an open-mind to learn new things every day. On top of school works, I have the opportunity to be part of the team of ABE ambassadors. We were part of events such as SPOH. I even have the privilege to run the DID graduation show 2019 as the chairperson.
DID has definitely given me many opportunities and broadens my perspectives. I would want to thank all the lecturers, staff and peers who have encouraged and guided me. You are the one who have made my journey an enriching and memorable one.
