M.A. Student – Class of 2022

Citizenship: Singapore


I come from Singapore, one of the truly global cities of the world, where people of different races, religions, and cultures come to live and work. I chose to study Global Thought at Columbia University because I wanted to learn more about how globalization has shaped the world we live in today. In particular, I have a deep interest in how the spread of American culture has influenced the politics of countries across the world. Eventually, I wish to serve in the Public Service back home in Singapore, where I can strive towards building both a compassionate society and a competitive economy for the next generation. Prior to enrolling in Columbia University, I attended King’s College London, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in War Studies.
