Mr Tan Yu Yang is one of Singapore Polytechnic’s eight top graduates in the previous academic year. He obtained a near-perfect grade point average of 3.99.
The 21 year old reflected that his mother only “wanted us to be good kids and not turn bad”.
Mr Tan has an older brother and he comes from a single-parent family unit where his mom was the main income-earner, working as a sales representative. His brother worked part time in stores and at F&B outlets.
Mr Tan was awarded the Low Guan Onn Gold Medal by Singapore Polytechnic. He graduated with a diploma in accountancy.
