This “Yingjie” Fellow

So, I’m Yingjie. I’m 23 this year, stuck somewhere in the midst of my undergraduate education and always wishing time would pass by faster.

I’m an undergraduate at the National University of Singapore (NUS) double majoring in biology and linguistics (we call them Life Sciences and English Language here respectively, which always annoyed me a little). More salient to my education, I’m in the University Scholars Programme (USP), where the bulk of my tertiary educational experiences have been concentrated and I’m grateful to the professors there who have stretched my mind and refused to let it shrink back to its former dimensions. The USP is an honours college within NUS, if you’d like to find out more about it, hit Google and take a look.

I’m also on a double degree programme under the USP with Waseda University’s School of Liberal Studies (SILS), so I’ll be heading to Tokyo, Japan sometime in September 2013 to do the first year of my second degree in Liberal Arts. Don’t be surprised if you find me nosing around some part of Tokyo for the next year.

Where I’m headed when I graduate? Probably to the National Institute of Education for my Post-Graduate Diploma in Education, then off to the Singaporean schools to teach biology and English Language. If things go well, I might stick an additional year of graduate school inside there for a Masters, but I’m not counting on it.

Where I’m ultimately headed? Wherever God directs me.
