Li Chen, Project Manager, Reclamation Division
I’m always intrigued by the “hidden” engine that powers Singapore’s growth.
Prior to the scholarship opportunity, I had limited knowledge of JTC as a 19-year-old. As I researched more, I was awed by the work of JTC. We always talk about how Singapore overcame the odds to become an economic powerhouse — I wanted to be a part of the action.
My overseas studies opened my eyes to the world.
I brought back useful knowledge and perspectives that I could apply to my work. The scholarship also came with various internship opportunities. As I explored the many facets of JTC’s operations during my internship stints, I also got to know myself better.
