Ho Kwok Yew | Diploma in Automation & Mechatronic Systems

What are your plans after graduation/National Service (NS)? 
I’m currently in NS, so my plans would probably be to sign on as a Naval Officer because my course is related to it.  

What are some of the best memories you’ve made in Ngee Ann? 
I would say skipping lectures is part of them, but having fun lessons with my lecturers and joking with them is quite fun too. 

Looking back, is there anything you wish you’d done differently? 
Definitely wanted to attend more lectures…

Is there anyone in Ngee Ann you’d like to thank? 
I’d like to thank Ms Tan Lay Fong for her support throughout the 3.5 years that I’ve been here. She’s been trying very hard to keep us in the course.

Lee Gan Perada Joseph | Diploma in Mass Communication

What are your plans after graduation/NS? 
I plan to be a teacher, because how the lecturers, how they taught here in Ngee Ann, they really inspired me and how they worked really hard; I see them at Makan Place working, drinking coffee for very, very long hours just like us. It really inspired me to be someone like them. 

What would you miss most about Ngee Ann?
The sense of companionship, especially working together with group mates here. A lot of them I know I’ll be seeing them in the industry in the future, but not all of them. The sense of camaraderie, working together, staying up late, I’ll miss that. 

What would you say to your juniors who have just started school?
Don’t give up, it’s tough but as long as you put your mind to it and you put in enough effort, you will get that 4.0.

Cindy Goh | Diploma in Accountancy

Looking back, is there anything you wish you’d done differently? 
Nope, there’s nothing. There’s nothing because I’ve achieved what I wanted to do, like serving the community. 

What would you miss most about Ngee Ann?
 I would say the friendship that I’ve forged here, with my classmates and my lecturers. And Makan Place, of course. I miss the banmian there. 

What would you say to your juniors who have just started school?
Don’t be too stressed, don’t freak out. The most important thing is to be optimistic in whatever that you do.

Nur Asyiqin bte Ashik | Diploma in Sustainable Urban Design & Engineering

What are some of the best memories you’ve made in Ngee Ann? 
Mainly, it’s the friends that I’ve made along the way. Because my course is a course where it’s studio based so we spend most of our days together and we get closer and we go for overseas trips as well. 

What are your plans after graduation? 
I actually already got accepted into Lasalle so I’m going to pursue an education in interior design.

Andre Hiu Yuan Xiang | Diploma in Information Technology 

What are your plans after graduation/NS?
Hopefully go to university overseas and study computer science. 

What would you miss most about Ngee Ann?
I’ll miss school as I won’t be going to school until a few years later so that’s something that I’ll miss, the school life. 

Is there anyone in Ngee Ann you’d like to thank? 
Mr Terence Choo, he taught me really well and helped me to do well for my math paper. 

What would you say to your juniors who’ve just started school? 
Good luck and try not to waste your time here as time passes by very fast.
