Young Harvard Alumni “Back in Singapore and following their passions”

January 24, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm SMT

$12

Five recent Harvard graduates will be discussing how they have followed their passions after Cambridge, back in Singapore – some have started their own bread-and-butter businesses (some not their first try) and all have followed their passions and dreams … but how did they move from a degree holder to business owner / author / poet / artist / TV host?

Hear from:

Amanda Chong, Harvard Law, is a published poet, co-founder of Readable which runs English literacy classes for children and migrant women in a low income neighbourhood and recently awarded the Singapore Youth Award 2018

En-Ming Ong, Harvard College, started The Rocket Eyewear Company which is a Singaporean sunglasses brand that fashion insiders are raving about.

Gaurav Keerthi, Kennedy School of Government, is a Brigadier General with the RSAF, currently Commander of the Air Defence and Operations Command, author of a best-selling
book, co-creator and host of an Emmy-nominated TV debate show.

Judith Huang, Harvard College, is a poet, writer and illustrator who has recently released her first novel Sofia and the Utopia Machine.

Victoria Martin, Harvard School of Engineering, left a corporate career to start boOm, a functional training and boxing studio which delivers a sustainable and engaging workout in an unintimidating environment.

Artist Vincent Low will also give us a  preview of his works at the gallery on the day.

We are looking forward to a lively and engaging discussion and hope to see you there!

Ticket charge $12/pax. Wine and light snacks provided.
