16 May 2017
Stomp, 15 May 2017 - Article featured SP’s Diploma in Media and Communication graduate and Institutional Medallist Chong Han Lyn. Months after she took up a diploma course in the field of life sciences at another polytechnic, she realised that a career in science was not for her. After reviewing the activities she excelled in during secondary school and visiting SP Open House, she chose her current course for its integrated communications approach. Her time in SP saw her working on several projects, including “Chance”, a short film for the Temasek 20/20 Short Film Project, as well as a one-month social media campaign in partnership with Migrant Workers’ Centre. The campaign video to raise awareness of migrant workers went viral and was picked up by local and online media outlets. She also represented SP in the POL-ITE Women’s Squash games and received the SP Excellence Awards for Sports for all three years. Outside of SP, Han Lyn signed up for the inaugural intake of the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Volunteer Corps and supported the SAF in their public communications efforts. She also provided weekly voluntary tuition to adults and students from low-income households at Filos Community Service Centre. During her four-month internship at one of the leading media agencies, Starcom, Han Lyn helped develop consumer insights and recommend media strategies to clients. Her abilities were recognised by the company and she was offered a full-time position even before completing her internship. Accepting Starcom’s offer for the role of media executive, Han Lyn hopes to build a successful brand persona for herself. She also aspires to create a well-known platform to share her thoughts and ideas for the greater good.span> COMMS note: This is part of our Graduation 2017 stories.
