Vanessa Liang

Diploma in Digital Visual Effects (Year 2), Greendale Secondary School alumna

When she learnt that much of the sophisticated visual effects in MediaCorp’s drama ‘The Journey’ were created by NYP students, Vanessa was inspired to do the same.

Aqil Akmal Bin Mohd Fadil

Diploma in Sustainable Architectural Design (Year 2), Fuchun Secondary School alumnus

As a child, Aqil loved playing with Lego. He loved the thrill of building something from scratch. Growing up, he started to wonder about the buildings he saw around him. That was when he knew he wanted to study architecture. So, when the opportunity to enrol in the first batch of NYP’s Diploma in Sustainable Architectural Design opened via the EAE, he jumped on it. And it was a good thing he did! He did not meet the diploma’s cut-off point with his ‘O’ Levels score but thanks to the EAE, he’d secured his spot in his desired course. Now, he is flourishing in the School of Design and was on the Director’s List for both semesters in his first year.
