During the World Cup, I was honoured to be selected as a Global Goals Ambassador representing Goal 10 on Reduced Inequalities. There were 15 other ambassadors of different nationalities for each of the respective goals.
As a freshie in Singapore Polytechnic, Enactus didn’t struck me then as a really ‘cool’ CCA club ( co-curricular activities club). In fact, I only knew more about Enactus when I was invited to attend the Enactus Nationals Singapore 2016. Also, I had the opportunity to learn more about social entrepreneurship when I did my overseas project in the Philippines and also recently when I attended the Enactus Nationals Malaysia 2017.

In our contemporary world many of us have the experience of making public presentations. We often present either at the university in front of our mates or at work in front of the colleagues or clients. Have you ever asked yourself what makes some presentations so successful? Of course, you might say that there are plenty of factors. But let us concentrate on at least five basic principles that make the foundation of a good presentation.

With summer vacation comes the internship season. Some of you may have applied for the internship as a chance to equip yourself with the skills or knowledge for your career option before graduation. Or you may be one of those who would rather be on holiday in Seoul but is forced to be there because it is a compulsory requirement for graduation.
Three weeks ago, our latest batch of students from the polytechnics embarked on their Enactus journey when they attended their first Pre-Accelerator Workshop. For some, this will be their first baby steps towards improving communities around them through entrepreneurial action, as they learned about problem identification and how to generate ideas to address them. For others, a path of personal discovery and development awaits. No one today can be sure where this journey will take them.

The fear of every fresh graduate is creeping up again — “how do I land a nice, cushy job in this market?”I’ve been working as an internal recruiter for a major company, and if I had a dollar for every ridiculous comment I’ve heard during my interviews, I could retire a millionaire by now.
Enactus’s bold yellow font and unusual name caught my attention as I saw an advertisement for a career development activity they were running.Out of curiosity and hungry to boost my business knowledge, I applied and joined their Exco.
The end of the year brings its sense of relief, a short window during which we may sit and rest and think about the year that just happened. It is a relief because we all have the same 365 days in a year, the same 24 hours a day with which to account for a year well-spent by our own standards, and this window is a chance to say, yes, I have done enough, or no, I have not done enough, but these couple of weeks will matter not. I start again next year.
It was by chance that I stumbled on the Enactus programme during a townhall at DBS where the team was presenting their work and requesting for volunteers. I was excited, put my hand up as I wanted more hands on experience with their programmes. I joined their business tools team, early this year and as the oldest member of the team, I must have got the average age of the group up by 20 years!
