Receiving the NUS Scholarship has truly enriched my life here in NUS. Many new windows of opportunities presented themselves as a result of this scholarship, such as being a part of the University Town College Programme and participating in other supplementary enrichment programmes, and I certainly did not hesitate to grab these opportunities. I am a proud resident of the College of Alice and Peter Tan, where I am involved in several activities including the Student Affairs committee, Badminton interest group and even the college’s inaugural Musical! Indeed, the NUS Scholarship gave me the freedom to pursue all that I have thus far.

There is an unimaginably vast world out there, full of stories and mysteries, ideas and inspirations. And one day, I want to see them all for myself. The NUS Scholarship brings me a step nearer, a horizon closer, to realising that dream.

It is a dream come true for me to be able to pursue the course of my choice while continuing to fence competitively, as I am extremely passionate about both. I am proud to be able to represent NUS, and I am grateful to NUS for supporting my sporting endeavours. With scholar grants and enrichment programmes available in addition to the plethora of exciting NUS-wide activities, the NUS Sports Scholarship has indeed provided me with the opportunity to enrich my university life, as well as the freedom to chase my dreams.
