Mr Stefan Liew Jing Rui, a recipient of the President’s Scholarship as well as the Singapore Police Force scholarship, has enrolled in local liberal arts college Yale-NUS.
He is one of five recipients this year of the President’s Scholarship.
Mr Liew, 19, who was formerly from the River Valley High School Integrated Programme, says that his choice of study will provide him with a different perspective of the world.
Going to Yale-NUS College will also allow Mr Liew to stay close to his family.
Mr Liew believes as remarkable as his accomplishments have been at such a young age, his family is just one of thousands around Singapore, and of all these families have different stories.
His personal goal, he said, is to learn to appreciate these hidden stories even more, through volunteering for different local causes.
