Ridhuan was highly motivated to work hard in Poly as he is passionate about making chemicals ⚗️and medicines. And although he's sponsored under the Joint Poly-SAF Diploma Scheme, he was humble and did not forget to pay it forward. As a peer tutor, he spent hours every week after school coaching junior students with ITE background. His overseas internship at Cardiff University was a life-changing experience for him as he forged new friendships with chemists from all over the world! Next week, this talented photographer from the Diploma in Chemical & Pharmaceutical Technology will be graduating with a Diploma with Merit and is looking forward to his career with SAF. All the BEST, Ridhuan!
