Being a Sergeant in the Singapore Armed Forces for the past two years was a life-changing experience for me and I am sure it was a unique one as well because not many people have the opportunity to be in the military. A personal goal of mine would be to make use of my leadership and independence to have a positive impact on my peers, not just academically but also in their everyday life.
One of the first things I hope to achieve at Queens would be to get into the Soccer team. Given my background in the sport, I just might have an edge over the rest trying out for the team. Beyond graduation, my childhood dream of featuring for Manchester United Football Club may be a little too far-fetched. Nevertheless, I will still aim to continue enjoying and trying to excel in the game.
Other than bringing my personal qualities to the table, I would also like to use my time at Queens to benefit from my peers what life have not been able to teach me thus far. I would not look at being in Queens as just another chapter in my life but as a learning experience - to make friends, to excel in the academic and athletic fronts, to improve on my work habits, and to add to the diversity in the school's culture.
I may still be unsure of whether my future is in Canada or Singapore but I am hopeful that being at Queens would help me decide on which would be the more viable option to take for the benefit of my life ahead.
