What’s in your bag, Joan?

Life in poly is exciting and full of learning opportunities. To get the most out of your experience, your bag should be stocked with all the items you need - from the basics to your guilty pleasures. In this issue of “What’s in your bag?” we ask owner, Joan Lee, who is a third year Biologics & Process Technology student, what she brings to her internship at  GSK Vaccines Manufacturing Plant. Joan is also the Treasurer of The Write Stuff, a CCA for social media and writing enthusiasts.

Here’s a mini quintessential guide from Joan, for what one ought to carry while on attachment.

Overseas Attachment Exceeds My Expectations

“Were you working or travelling?!”

This was what friends and family asked me jokingly after I came back to Singapore from my trip to Germany. Over the last few weeks, I shared a lot of travel photos on Facebook, which I managed to capture while I was on attachment. I was very lucky to be able to do my internship in Germany.
Here’s my experience and I hope you will be able to experience this yourselves some day!

I was selected to participate in the Overseas Industrial Placement Programme (OIPP) by NYP. The programme gives final year students an opportunity to work in companies overseas and gain practical experience.

The Art of Balancing - More than Meets the Eye

Second Year Nursing students Chew Chi Yao (above, left) and Rachel Lim (above, right) are masters at the art of balancing. They not only balance work, school, social activities, but also their relationship with each other. Yes, they are dating, and met each other through their CCA – Cheerleading.

The pair is not just great at their CCA, but they are also familiar faces on their School’s Director’s List, which recognises students with outstanding academic records.

I decided to meet them in person so as to discover how and why they click. For a start, they exhibited such an amazing chemistry, almost like a perfect couple.   Here’s what they have to say.
