Mobile app whizz-kid chooses NYP

Reagan Goh, 17, might seem to be your typical student, having just started his first semester with NYP. But there’s more than meets the eye…


You see, Reagan develops mobile apps.


And he’s so good at it, he’s been teaching people and professionals much older than him how to do this for years now.


At 13, the whizz-kid’s first mobile application was a digital shopping platform – where sellers upload products onto the app for a fee. At that age, he also started AppElit, a company to train non-savvy persons in creating mobile sites and applications.


And, oh yeah, he’s also been recorded as Singapore’s youngest mobile app trainer.


Reagan went for the Early Admissions Exercise (EAE), and it scored him a place at NYP before he even took his O Levels. He choose NYP’s Diploma in Business Informatics, which delves into both business management and IT – the best of both worlds, says the passionate entrepreneur. He’s looking forward to tapping on NYP’s strong industry links while developing his skills. He said: “NYP is well known for its established partnerships with multinational corporations, and it will be easier for me to get an internship in my final year.”


PS: Reagan’s doing nicely in NYP now. Not only is he being challenged with a Diploma-Plus programme which gives selected students a chance to take on advanced modules and courses that will prepare them for university – he’s also started a Business Networking interest group in the two short months since he’s entered NYP. It’s got 30 members to date and he’s also a member of the Entrepreneurship Club. Awesome stuff Reagan!
