"I took up an opportunity to come to America for a 6-month attachment... My parents were not convinced but they chose to respect my decision. They were concerned that the attachment will not add value to my future career and I will just be wasting 6 months in America. However, my instincts strongly believed that this golden opportunity will instead, push me closer to my personal aspirations. While I am young and have this strong desire to learn from the best. These 6 months have definitely been a highly enriching and eye-opening experience. I am very excited for my future and believe that I am now one huge step closer to my own dream." - Goh Chern Kuan, National University of Singapore
