CNM Honours Students, Esther Ng and Mabel Yeo have made it to the final round of The Culture Trip Award – an international writing competition. The Culture Trip Award is a competition for students in the final year of their studies, with an interest in a career in art, culture, food, travel sector. Esther and Mabel saw this as great opportunity to demonstrate their writing skills and dived right in. In her own words, Esther tells us why this is important for Mabel and herself;
“As very close friends who share the same major in Communications & New Media, Mabel and I were thrilled to find an opportunity to showcase our writing (honed from our time of study in CNM) on a global platform. This manifested in the form of The Culture Trip Award, a competition open to graduating students hosted by international travel and lifestyle website The Culture Trip. We will be graduating this semester and hope to enter the communications industry – winning this Award would be a massive boost in that arena, and a huge affirmation to us. We appreciate all the support we can get, and are looking forward to representing NUS, FASS, CNM and –on a broader scale– our country Singapore on this worldwide stage. Thank you so much!”
The first three prizes for the competition are based on readership and both of them hope that the CNM community can help them by reading their articles.
