I Champion Environmental Sustainability!
Koh Jin Hao
Graduate, School of Applied Science (Diploma in Chemical & Green Technology)
Science, technology and the environment: It was a course that combined all of these. I wanted in! Having heard great things about NYP from my older brothers, who were also from NYP, I put it as my first choice in the Early Admissions Exercise.
During my interview, I talked about how we had one Earth and how we should protect it. I shared some concepts, theories and ideas that I had. And yay, I impressed the interviewers and made it! It also meant I didn’t have to stress too much for my ‘O’s – I just had to make sure I at least got a minimum score.
NYP’s given me loads of exposure and opportunities. I was the first WorldSkills Singapore representative to compete in the newly introduced Water Technology category and brought home the Silver Medal. This diploma has prepared me for my career aspiration – to be a chemical engineer contributing towards building a sustainable environment.
