FASS Class of 2017

Graduate Spotlight

Here at FASS, we encourage our students to embrace challenges and make the most out of their undergraduate lives. The following students exemplify the fearless spirit well, as each of them have went beyond excelling in their studies to pursue their passions as well, from Yi Feng, a mental health activist, and Jacqueline who champions for greater accessibility in campus; to Kevin and Jake, who actively look for ways to contribute to society. In 2017, we also celebrate a number of firsts, such as the Faculty's inaugural batch of graduates from the Concurrent Degree Programme (CDP) in Psychology. Click into their respective profiles to find out more!

Southeast Asian Studies graduate, active volunteer, founder of the Mental Health Wing at NUS, two-time FASS Student Leadership Award (FSLA) winner, and champion of mental health in Singapore, Southeast Asia, and beyond. Meet Yi Feng.

Jacqueline's resilience in the face of adversity inspires us all. Despite living with Generalised Dystonia, which affects both her mobility and speech abilities, Jacqueline excelled in History and participated fully in college life. Find out more about this CAPT resident and be inspired!

One of our valedictorians, a troupe member of NUS Lion Dance, and an Officer with the NUS NPCC, Elvis is also a fresh graduate from the Concurrent Degree Programme (CDP) in Psychology. Take a peek into his journey through FASS!


When a language disappears, a culture's unique ideas, perspectives, and realities evaporates with it. This is why Kevin is on a mission to revive Kristang, a unique creole of Portuguese, Malay, and Chinese languages; and the language of Portuguese Eurasians. Kevin runs Kristang classes, and has developed a 30 year masterplan to revive the 500 year old language. How about learning some basic phrases with him and Frances? An Economics graduate, Jake is the CEO and co-founder of RateX, a start-up that is featured on Straits Times as one of the top three Forex disruptors. What does RateX do? For one, it allows you to shop stress-free on Amazon and other international e-commerce platforms, as the Chrome extension allows you to pay in SGD and do away with the hidden fees that come with credit cards.
