Stories from Students
(Singapore Management University)
“I found it quite fulfilling as I had the opportunity to talk to industry professionals. Their insights were really helpful and knowing where to start to pursue my goals is such a huge step for me.”
Wei Bing, 18
(Institute of Technical Education)
“The mentoring journey has been a smooth and engaging one for me. My mentors were really helpful in helping me to understand the law as an industry in Singapore and the different pathways I can take to get to my goals.”
(National University of Singapore)
“There was more of the focus on the values as compared to just looking at the field – some of the things my mentors asked us was ‘are we even interested in this field?’ and ‘where does our interest lie?’. It wasn’t just a downloading of information.”
(Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts)
“I’m really grateful that that my mentor not only shared his experiences, but also find out more about ourselves and how we can improve as individuals.”
