Scholarship Project

I wish to increase the accessibility of dental services for individuals in rural parts of Southeast Asia and Australia by devising cost-effective and sustainable solutions to maintain good oral health.

Biography

I am currently a second year student working towards a Bachelor of Advanced Science/Doctor of Dental Medicine at the University of Sydney. 

Growing up in multi-cultural metropolis such as Singapore has imbued me with the ability and inclination to reach out to people regardless of their background. My insatiable curiosity and inquisitive nature has allowed me to assimilate into different cultures, thrive and consequently find strength in diversity. My unique Malaysian and Australian heritage has spurred my desire to form more unique connections in a dynamic and fast-paced global landscape.

 

Upon graduation, I aim to adopt a bottom up approach of giving back to society by becoming a healthcare practitioner, whilst remaining resilient and grounded towards applying technical expertise to improve the lives of others.
