27 Apr 2020

Article featured two 20-year-old SP Diploma in Engineering Systems graduates, Ho Wei Rui and Ho Song Rui. During primary one, the twins were diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). They would run about in class and fall asleep when the teacher revises previous topics. The most difficult subjects for them were English and Chinese as they found it hard to read and write characters. Luckily, the twins’ mother enrolled them in a reading and writing programme offered by the Dyslexia Association of Singapore and their condition improved from there. The twins also found new interest in Math as it required less reading and writing. Compared to English and Chinese, they could understand Math concepts that included graphs and models much faster. Influenced by their father who was an Engineer, they decided to enrol in SP’s Diploma in Engineering Systems. The twins would often revise together and help each other. For their hard work, Wei Rui will be graduating as the top student in his cohort this year. Wei Rui and Song Rui have also been offered a spot in the Singapore Institute of Technology and Singapore University of Technology and Design respectively. They aspire to pursue an Engineering related career in the future. (Lianhe Wanbao, p5)
