M.A. Student – Class of 2022
I lived in Singapore for the first 21 years of my life and am a recipient of the Singapore Armed Forces Merit Scholarship. Over the past 3 years, I studied abroad in the UK where I pursued a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the University of Warwick, before undergoing remote learning a year ago due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During this upcoming academic year, I hope to read on topics in International Relations and Cybersecurity as part of the M.A. in Global Thought program in order to deepen my knowledge of global affairs and the integration of digital technology in national defense. Upon my graduation, I will serve as an Army Officer in the Singapore Ministry of Defense where I aim to develop future-ready Army policies in order to advance the organization’s efforts to harness big data and digital technology to adapt to a fast-paced and ever-evolving geopolitical landscape.
