“First-semester of senior year was really hard because I was finding out about all the colleges my friends were getting into while I still needed to serve in National Service. This was one of the downs of my rollercoaster ride in HS, but there were more ups for sure.”

“High school was definitely a lot about trying different things. It took me a while to realize what subjects I enjoyed and what kinds of friends I liked to be with. Honestly, I learned not to care about what other people think, because at the end of the day, it’s my life, and I’m the one living it.”

“Before I came to SAS, I thought SAS was a place of professionalism, prestigiousness and rigidness. However, after meeting a bunch of people, I realized that SAS is a lot less stressful and formal and everyone is really goofy.”

  1. Really enjoyed this Jenny. Thanks for sharing more about some of the seniors. Singapore is going to miss the class of 2016, that’s for sure!
