I am able to tell myself that the last 3 years of my life have been amazing
T he last 3 years at Ngee Ann Polytechnic had been an extraordinary experience that I have never once regretted. I have learnt many new things, gathered new experiences and most importantly I have met good people that have made an impact in my life.
Lecturers who are passionate in their work and are always patient and willing to help us, but yet like friends as well whom we can joke around with. Friends who I have met and worked together with who I plan to keep in my life for a long long time.
Lastly, not forgetting the cute aunties and uncles who have helped keep our school clean, every morning they would sure to be there to greet me with a smile. I still remember back in 2014 when I was picking my choices for polytechnic, Iwas really confused as I was not certain of what I wanted to study, all i knew was that i wanted to pursue arts. Whilst flipping through the JAE booklet, i stumbled upon Multimedia and Animation which apparently is an art course hence without much thought, i chose it. Only upon entering did I realise i had to do programming as well. Which I later realised was actually a good thing, as my options now were not as specialised as I thought and I could gain a new skill.
The one good privilege I had being a Multimedia and Animation student was that i never really had to travel far for classes, our lessons were all within the same area. This in turn gave us more time to complete our homework, instead of rushing through it at night.
Another good thing is that our timetable is mostly fixed, classes usually started at 9am and would end at either 1pm or 6pm. This made it much easier for me to plan my lessons or activities outside of school.
Now that graduation is near, I am relieved that I am able to tell myself that the last 3 years of my life have been amazing and that I did not make the wrong choice.
