Current Job Title/Designation and name of company
Teacher at Kingsley International School
Tell us briefly about your current job and company
My current job is teaching Speech and Drama at Kingsley International School for Years 1, 2, 3, 7 and 10. The challenge of having a job once we have graduated is that the environment has changed and the responsibilities one holds is much more than the ones students have. Kingsley is really like a family that looks out for each other. The CEO has been around since I was a student there and the genuine care that she has for us as individuals is remarkable. The company recently got ISO certified and the teachers are all making a diligent effort to uphold the standards set.
Tell us about your course/major and why you chose it.
I went to Sunway University to do Business. I chose this course because it is my genuine interest that I still have. I have an imagination that is quite abnormal and I thought I could use that in the field of business.
What is your most memorable experience in school?
There were so many memorable moments when I was a student. If I had to pick one from the lot, I guess I would have to say my first trip with my classmates to Taman Negara. We really bonded and I saw first-hand what a second home means. Through all the mischief and trouble we got into, misfits coming together gave me memories I can recall and laugh. Stories I share with my kids in school today.
What were your favourite and least favourite subjects in school, and why?
Although I love sports and always look for ways to be out in the field, my favourite subject would have to be Maths. My Maths has been poor ever since I started secondary school. My Maths teacher in my final year of high school changed my mind-set. She told me to never give up despite my grade being a G. So I practised every day and in my IGCSE I managed to get a C. During my university days my Math subjects never dropped below A thanks to her. My least favourite would be ICT which I later dropped. This is because I could never get the hang of using computer neither did I have the interest for it.
What extracurricular activities did you do?
I joined football mainly but I did try board games, speech and drama, Korean language and dance club.
What was the best thing about your school? What important lessons did you learn in your school that have helped you in your life?
If you put in effort anything can be achieved.
If you could travel back in time, what is the one thing that you would change when you were a student?
My attitude towards studies.
What advice would you give to current students of your alma mater?
