A lot of people want a shortcut. I find the best shortcut is the long way, which can be described in two words: work hard. At RP, I have learnt that hard work pays off.
Lee Wen Wei Joseph
Diploma in Business Applications
2016 Graduate, Valedictorian

Joseph graduated with Merit from the Diploma in Business Applications in 2016. His outstanding academic performance saw him inducted into the Director’s Roll of Honour not just once but four times. He was also a recipient of the Lee Foundation Scholarship in 2015. 

Joseph represented RP in the YEAR Enterprise Resource Management Challenge, where his team came in third. He also volunteered with Operation Smile in 2013 to raise awareness for cleft lips and other childhood facial birth defects. 

Through his active participation in various events in and outside of RP, Joseph learned the importance of managing his time well and was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. 

Joseph’s achievements were all the more impressive given his challenged family background. His mother passed away when he was very young, and with an absent father, Joseph was brought up and supported by his paternal grandmother and aunt. Despite the adversities he faced, Joseph kept up a positive attitude in life and in learning. Rising from a mediocre student to one of our top graduates, Joseph thanked the RP team in his valedictory speech, as he attributed much of his success and achievements to the dedication of our passionate team of educators. Joseph’s experience is testament that, with determination and a team of committed educators, every student can expect a fruitful journey at RP. 

DMSD has allowed me to dive deeper into the world of IT and mobile technology. Considering how technology has been part of the world’s progression, this course has clearly given me a competitive advantage over others in the future.
Asher Chua Yee Liang
Diploma in Mobile Software Development
2015 Graduate

Asher was part of the pioneer cohort of the Diploma in Mobile Software Development. He graduated in 2015 with Merit and was inducted into the Director's Roll of Honour four times. He was also awarded the MILK Scholarship and Far East Scholarship in 2013. 

Thanks to the support he received at SOI, Asher was able to partake in vibrant student life despite his financial constraints. He participated in major school events, such as the YEAR Open House, and even helped to organise and run student events like the YEAR Mobile IG Camp. He also had the opportunity to compete in InnovateIT, a nationwide IT business case competition organised by the School of Information Systems, Singapore Management University. 

DBA has taught me to be flexible, to be ready for the unexpected and to adapt to our ever-changing world. My internship experience gave me the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills learnt in the classroom. Learning on the job became second nature to me.
