Porting his dreams to reality

 James Pinto (extreme right) winning the Microsoft Imagine Cup in 2008

James Pinto, 24, never expected that he would win the Microsoft Imagine Cup in 2008 or become Shell LiveWIRE’s “Most Promising Entrepreneur” this year. After all, he was just an average student at that time. But with encouragement from the School of Engineering, the NYP alumni managed to channel his energy and enthusiasm into making his dreams a reality. Now he owns his own business and works from an office in NYP.

NYP Open House 2012 Spotlight: Grace Lai

Grace Lai’s parents were surprised at first when she told them that she wanted to enrol at NYP after her ‘A’ levels.

But her parents were quickly won-over by Grace’s passion for helping others and her determination for becoming a nursing professional. She may have taken the ‘scenic’ route, but she’s happy to finally be on the right path.

NYP Open House 2012 Spotlight: Sheena Ramazanu

Sheena Ramazanu has all the qualities of a great nursing professional. When asked about her greatest achievement, she rather talk about helping her classmates score ‘A’s rather than her own distinctions (35!) and ‘A’s (6!).

And like many NYP graduates, Sheena’s story started when she graduated from secondary school.

When Sheena completed her ‘O’ levels, she knew she wanted to study nursing. As a young girl, her father, who himself was a former nurse and a nursing lecturer for over 16 years, would tell her dramatic stories about caring for patients.

When she was tasked to work on a secondary school project on the disabled, her passion for nursing was cemented. She was deeply inspired when the blind diabetic patients she spoke to cited their nurses as their motivation to go on with life.

And thus began her journey into nursing.

She enrolled in NYP’s School of Health Sciences after her ‘O’ levels and graduated in 2011. Along the way, she picked up a venerable bevy of awards including the Ministry of Health Gold Medal, the Singapore Nurses Association Award for Clinical Education in Nursing, the CapitaLand Healthcare Frontliners Award and the Tay Eng Soon Award; which is presented to the top graduate from the School of Health Sciences.

This distinguished NYP graduate is currently pursuing her degree in nursing, and she will be sharing her story with ‘O’ level graduates and their parents at the “Parents Seminar: Choices After ‘O’s”.

Discover NYP learns more about her story.

Dentists Vs Dental Hygienists, The Sprinter Vs the Marathon Runner

Dentists have a small customer base of big spenders, while Dental Hygienists have a large base of smaller spenders. This was one of the main messages that Dr Irfan Ali, a lecturer in the School of Health Sciences, had for a group of secondary 3 Catholic High School students during a 3-hour workshop organized by the School of Health Sciences. 

Dr  Irfan Ali speaking to the students about the Diploma in Dental Hygiene and Therapy.

This workshop was part of a programme for secondary school students to learn moreabout the Diploma in Dental Hygiene and Therapy course, which is taught by Dr Irfan Ali.

 "You will be in demand," Dr Irfan Ali said.

Dr Ali said that the course allows students to develop more hands-on experience and contact time with their lecturers. Students pursuing this diploma will receive approximately 3,000 hours of contact time per semester.

"If the diploma was available to me when I was studying, I would have taken it," Dr Irfan Ali said, referring to the diploma's prospects.

Mdm Eudora Soh, a Dental Therapist Support Officer who co-ran the workshop, agrees. She said that graduates who can do their job well while developing a rapport with customers are in high demand.

In addition to the introductory lecture, the 4 Catholic High School students also worked on over-sized training teeth.
Mdm Soh shows the students the training teeth they will be working on.

Joshua Lim and Alvin Loh, two students who attended the workshop, found it helpful.

Alvin said that, "it answered a lot of industry questions I had and highlighted the different career paths I can take."
Mdm Soh shows Catholic High School student, Joshua Lim (center), how to work on the training teeth.

Joshua said that the workshop helped him understand the differences between a Dental Hygienist and a Dentist. "Before I came here, I didn't know the difference. I thought a dentist is a dentist!"
Mdm Soh (foreground) with (from left to right) Joshua Lim, Elvin Tan, Alvin Loh and Chen Peng Hao.
Joshua added, "This course is the only one available in Singapore, so there's little competition and it's easier to find a job."

Ever been to a concert where the band or singer just plays song after song, maybe occasionally asking a person or two from the audience to join them on stage for a song before they continue singing and promoting their latest albums? You are left there feeling extremely disconnected from the entire concert.

It’s Not Easy Being an Exchange Student

24-year-old Eui Bong Yeo (Charlie) is a fourth year student from Chungnam National University, South Korea, is doing a one-year attachment at Nanyang Polytechnic in Singapore, and has done a 6-month attachment in the US. The reason? He wants to broaden his horizons, improve his English, and hopefully gather enough worldly experience to become a global financial trader in Korea.

So what are the perks and gripes of studying at NYP as an exchange student? Charlie bares his heart out…

A Thoughtful Gift

If you are thinking of doing something special for a friend or significant other, well you can wine and dine or even splurge on a present, but nothing beats a personal touch when it comes to gifts.
This includes efforts like a hand-made card or personally baked cake, which oozes sincerity. However the process of creating something from scratch can be quite daunting. So when MSC Studio launched this new T-shirt printing service, it seems like a great idea.

Real Steel - Real robots, Real action

By Nur Wahidah, Year 1, Diploma in Mass Media Management

Are you a fan of robots or boxing? Or even the hit blockbuster movie “Transformers”? Well if you answered yes to either of these questions, “Real Steel” is a must watch for you!

This movie is set into the future, year 2020, where the sport of boxing is modernized and robots replace humans. As a result, a new sport called “Robot Boxing” was formed.  Hugh Jackman stars as Charlie Kenton, a long-time professional boxer who in the future becomes the controller of the robots instead. However, even though Charlie was one of the champion boxers in his young era, he is not doing so well with his robot. Charlie finds himself losing ‘robot boxing’ battles and in turn, loses bets he makes with other battlers that leaves him in debts of US$50,000 or more.

Delivering POWERFUL Presentations

By Ho Khin Wai, 1st Year, Diploma in Banking & Financial Services

The new semester has just begun and we are back to flipping those pages again! Soon enough, students will be loaded with tutorials and assignments, not forgetting the projects we have to complete. We may do up very detailed and comprehensive reports, but when it comes to the presentation part, many of us don’t pay enough attention to it. Fairly often, my schoolmates would do up their “quick-and-easy” PowerPoint slides only few days before their presentation, and are satisfied with it.
While it is true presentations only carry little weightage out of the whole project, that isn’t the case in the working world. In fact, pitches and presentations are the key to clinching major business deals or just simply to share an experience with others. Moreover, having good, powerful presentations engages your audience, which means a possibility of a higher grade.
With that in mind, I offer you ten tips on how to deliver stunning and intriguing presentations…

A Sensory and Therapeutic Enclave

Jo in the newly revamped relaxation corner
One rainy morning, a forlorn student was found at the Occupational Therapy Garden visiting her asparagus plant. After meeting SHS (AH) lecturer Jo Hobman at the garden, the student left much happier.  According to Jo, students tend to visit their plants “just before their exams” as it helps them to relax. The garden was set up to teach Diploma in Occupational Therapy students the positive therapeutic effects derived from growing plants, for example the rich sensory experience provided by plant texture or the smell and colour of the flowers. Gardening also provides purposeful occupation with benefits, for both physical and mental health, and enhancement of quality of life.

An Interview with the Noodle Man from the South

By Kenneth Lee Bozheng, Year 3, Engineering Informatics

The saying a smile makes all the difference certainly rings true for Mr Jackson Lu, the affable stall owner who operates his bustling noodle business at NYP’s South Canteen. Armed with an infectious smile and pleasant personality, Jackson is memorable and well-liked by many. Jackson’s popularity is reflected not just in the vast amount of customers who return to him, but also online, where a Facebook page called “Enthu Noodle Man From The South” has been specially created in recognition of his excellent service.
Justin Heng, a third year student from the Diploma in Engineering Informatics, is the creator of the page. He decided to start this page because he felt it was something new to do and no one has ever created a page like this in NYP before. When asked if he ever thought the page would make it this far, Justin comments that it took off much faster than expected, and it was a fun and learning experience for him in Social Media.
We interview Jackson, the Noodle Man himself to see what he has to say about his popular Facebook page:

Mention Geographical Information System (GIS) and you would probably do a double-take. While the technology is not new, it is certainly not as popular as its close cousin, the Global Positioning System (GPS). So to encourage tertiary and JC-level students to use GIS, the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has organised a Spatial Challenge.
