From Ms CHANG Ching Chen _ on January 11th, 2019
Advice, for our alumni, yes, it’s what I always say to the students when they come for the sandwich lunches. Very often, they sort of ask, one way or another, the question whether I planned to be president of a university in Singapore by the time I graduated from my engineering studies. And I always have to tell them, I never wanted to work in academia, and when I graduated in 1976 as engineer, I don’t think I really knew where Singapore was. So, when I look at my own career, it’s more one of grasping opportunities. Saying yes sometimes before you’re fully ready to take on a new job. But, yes, be adaptable, continue to learn, continue to inform yourself and grasp the opportunities. And in particular, do what you like to do—that’s my only advice.
