All In The Family
For three students at SBM, family played a big part in deciding which courses they pursued.
Nur Aqilah BInte Noorghani, grew up in a sports-loving household. Aqilah wanted to apply for the Diploma in Sport and Wellness Management (DSWM) to achieve her dreams of becoming a PE teacher.
Aqilah’s elder sister, who was in the same course, was the one who encouraged her to apply for the course.
“My sister has been my role model for as long as I can remember,” Aqilah said. After being introduced to EAE, she applied for her dream course to secure her spot and was accepted into the programme.
Another DSWM student, Syarifah Syahirah Binte Jamalludin, did not know what to pursue after completing her O-Level examinations. At that time, Syarifah’s elder sister was in DSWM. As her sister shared her experiences with her and when she saw how passionate she was about the course, Syarifah was inspired and decided to follow in her sister’s footsteps.
Convinced of the benefits of the course, Syarifah applied for DSWM through EAE. After graduating from NYP, Syarifah aspires to continue her studies to become a sports physiotherapist.
Likewise, for year three student Seet Yue Hent from the Diploma in Business Management (DBM), he was inspired by his family to pursue his course.
Aspiring to take over his family’s business, Yue Hent lends a hand at his mother’s construction company during the holidays.
Upon reviewing the various courses in NYP, DBM caught his attention for its attractive double specialisation offered in year two. To take a step closer to his dreams, Yue Hent decided to apply for SBM through EAE after being introduced to this aptitude-based route by his secondary school.
He shared: “Since I’m studying human resources now, I’m able to contribute to the business by sourcing for talent and handling the compensation and benefits of the employees.”
