With enviable qualities of self-awareness, humility and empathy, Dillen is an inspiration to many of his peers.

“You’re on this broad journey of life. All these things that you do are just steps you take to get to the best version of yourself. Don’t be fazed by doing badly - there is no shame in encountering burnouts or hitting the wall. Don’t let one bad result get you down. Pick yourself up and carry on.”

Ryan Lee seated.JPG




















Ryan Lee Shi Hern

During his time in CJC, Ryan Lee Shi Hern excelled in both academic and Co-Curricular Activities. He was Captain of the ASEAN School Games Men's Gymnastics Team, leading his team to a Bronze medal in 2016 and making history in 2017, when his team achieved the best performance ever at the Games, with a total of eight individual medals and a team medal. In school, he applied himself diligently to his studies and was also elected Sports Leader and Patrick House Captain. As House Captain, he worked collaboratively to plan and execute school activities such as the Post-Promotional Examination Games in 2017 and the Sports and Aesthetics Carnival in 2018. To further his leadership development, Ryan participated in an Overseas Service Learning Project in Mai Chau in the Northwest region of Vietnam, and was also involved in his class's Local Service Learning Project, the Meals-on-Wheels Programme organised by Touch Community Services. Leadership roles and achievements aside, Ryan is a modest young man who is eager to effect positive change in his community. He dreams of contributing to the academic world through research and development in the area of Chemistry.

“During my time in CJ, I realised that there are many students who underestimate their potential and as a result, do not work hard enough to achieve their goals. So, to the juniors - do not get affected by your shortcomings but take ownership of your learning and push yourself to do better. Prioritise your learning over things that may not necessarily be important and then focus on your studies fully.”

Celine Sim seated.JPG




















Celine Sim
During her two years in CJC, Celine Sim Yen Li was daring and farsighted in her pursuit of knowledge. A high achiever, she set high expectations for herself and worked towards them with tenacity, effort and determination. Celine was a recipient of the Edusave Merit Award. She was also a dedicated member of the college's Netball team. As her class’s Assistant Home Tutorial Councillor, she was responsible and performed her duties diligently, demonstrating her decision-making skills as a competent leader. She was overall Chairperson for the class's Local Service Learning Project, where she led her class in a project benefitting the Yellow Ribbon Foundation. This opportunity not only allowed her to give back to her community but also allowed her to grow in her leadership and communication skills. Outside the classroom, Celine was entrusted with the role of Producer for the college’s annual Literary Evening. As Producer, she was committed to team building and encouraged a cooperative atmosphere which improved the team’s morale. This led to her class earning the title of “Overall Best Production”.

“Go for consultations with your friends. It helps a lot because each friend does different things so you learn from your friends too. We benefit from learning and helping each other and ultimately, we want everyone to do well together. Moreover, know what you want and stick with that end in mind. When challenges come your way, always keep your end goal in mind.”

Isaac Soh standing.JPG













































Isaac Soh

Isaac exhibited the best qualities one has come to associate with a CJCian: responsible, disciplined, caring. Not only was Isaac an exemplary student in the classroom, he demonstrated his commitment to a holistic education by pursuing his love of nature with the Environmental Science Society, eventually helming it as their President. During his tenure, he organised various recycling projects such as the Cross-Country Recycling Project as well as a week-long newspaper collection and environmental awareness programme during Earth Week. His teachers selected him for the Singapore Environmental Action and Leadership (SEAL) Programme at Yale-NUS College because of his knowledge and eagerness to learn about environmental issues. In all the endeavours Isaac undertook, he was never one to be daunted by the scale or the challenge of the task ahead. This included an Overseas Service Learning Programme trip to Vietnam where he and his teammates helped to construct a playground at a school in rural Vietnam. Isaac has a calm demeanor and is a thoughtful individual who is observant and sensitive to the needs of others.  

CJC has platforms like the Leadership Training Camp which helped me learn how to be a good leader for my CCA. My teachers were always there for me and made time for me whenever I had questions and doubts. So I would say that the teachers and staff were the most important support system I had.

Tiffany Tan seated.JPG




















Tiffany Tan
During her time in CJC, Tiffany was a focussed and determined student with a growth mindset and a positive attitude towards her studies. Her tenacity and resilience saw her overcome difficulties and succeed even in the subjects she was weaker in. A recipient of the English Language Elective Scholarship (ELES), Tiffany was offered a work attachment opportunity with the Asian Film Archive (AFA) where she explored her interest in graphic design and advertising. Besides her academic pursuits, Tiffany developed sound leadership skills during her time in college. With her strong interpersonal skills, she was elected to the college’s 43rd Student Council. Tiffany’s strong faith and commitment to service saw her take on the position of Head of the Catholic Activities Wing, where she led her fellow councillors in organizing various events to promote faith formation within the college. She was also involved in planning and executing several major school events including Teachers’ Day, Open House 2018, Rockafella, and Graduation Night. Tiffany’s leadership skills were further honed during an overseas service learning project to Vietnam where she helped to create lessons to teach the local children soft skills. She also volunteered to be the trip’s photographer as she was eager to put her creativity to good use. Ever helpful and optimistic, Tiffany always went the extra mile to help her classmates in their work.  

I think it is very important to have something to ground you no matter what your religion is and have friends to speak with, especially when you are very stressed. My faith has helped me a lot in my CJ journey and I was able to use my talents to serve God and the school.

Seated Joshua Ng.JPG




















Joshua Ng

Joshua’s strength lies in his drive to excel, be it in the area of sports or academia. He worked hard and encouraged his peers to do the same. He was a positive influence to his peers and established strong relationships with them. In class, he was engaged and showed an eagerness to learn. During his time in CJC, Joshua was elected Vice-Captain of the Rugby Team. In his leadership journey, Joshua developed organisational and facilitation skills by leading the team during training sessions. He never failed to motivate the team and was responsible for their welfare. In addition, Joshua was part of the main organising team that planned and facilitated activities during the college’s Open House and Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) Bazaar. Aside from leadership and academic development, Joshua also participated in two college-based service learning projects, which included an Overseas Service Learning Project in Ratchaburi Province in Thailand in 2017. In addition, as part of his class’s Local Service Learning Project in 2017, Joshua was involved in the Meals-on-Wheels Program organised by Touch Community Services. He delivered meals to the home-bound elderly, who expressed their gratitude for the meals and conversations that they had with the students.  

I chose CJC because of God, and by His grace, I managed to study my hardest even though I was tired. There is a lot of gratitude to all the people who have helped me through all this and especially to God, because without him, nothing is possible.

Elizabeth Wee standing.JPG













































Elizabeth Wee

Elizabeth’s focus, determination and capacity for criticality of thought demonstrated in her time in college was only rivalled by her tenacity in making the most of her CJC experience. Elizabeth adopted a holistic approach towards college life, having been President of the college’s Symphonic Band, wherein her exemplary leadership, self-discipline, and charisma were crucial in guiding her band towards a spirit of excellence. Elizabeth also served in the Music Ministry as a vocalist and an instrumentalist in school masses and important College events. Elizabeth was an Orientation Group Leader which further developed her sense of commitment in the arduous preparation for Orientation week. Her compassion towards others was seen in her participation in the 2017 Overseas Service Learning Project in Vietnam, a seven-day community involvement program, where, elected as the Second In-Charge, she contributed greatly to the project to make a positive difference in the lives of the children. She managed the team in the preparation and execution of the games, lessons, physical work activities, and was a crucial factor in the team’s success. While juggling the rigour of academic demands, she also rallied her class to perform during Literary Evening 2018 and she was the Director, Scriptwriter and main cast member. Their performance won ‘Best Production’ that year. She received the Edusave Character Award in 2017 and 2018 in recognition of her exemplary discipline and character, and is a model of the school’s values throughout and beyond her academic journey. Elizabeth’s gentle spirit and appreciation for beauty and the arts has only complemented her relentless drive for holistic development and she truly exemplifies a Thinker with a Mission, Leader with a Heart. She is proof that it is indeed possible to pursue your artistic passions and to balance it with a consistent focus on the academic journey.  

It was amazing how everyone was able to leave everything behind in Singapore, like the stress from school, as well as other personal problems, and just immerse themselves in the OSLP experience. It allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and helped me to become a better and more compassionate person. My OSLP experience played a significant role in improving my leadership skills as well.

Jen Chye devoted himself wholeheartedly in all of his tasks and duties. He constantly strove to stretch and improve himself in his academic as well as sporting pursuits. Jen Chye demonstrated tremendous growth, especially in broadening his perspectives and recognising underlying assumptions and beliefs that drive society and humankind. As a member and Secretary of the Badminton team, Jen Chye actively sought to improve by watching matches and learning better ways to execute shots. A valuable member of the team, he represented the College in the National School Games. Jen Chye’s tenacity and determination to do well also shone in his participation in the National School Games ‘A’ Divisions for Golf where he overcame formidable competitors and clinched the 4th position in the Individual category. Jen Chye extends his philosophy of giving his best in every task, great or small, to his role as the class’s Subject Representative for Economics. He rallied his classmates and encouraged them to be consistent in their efforts for the subject. Jen Chye’s perceptive and analytical skills drive him towards an interest in the field of actuarial sciences as he is fascinated by the nature of the work involved.

It is the passion for learning that produces the results because if you are passionate about something, it really motivates you to push through anything. It is that desire to learn more that pushes you to do better.

My friends are my inspiration and I have had a lot of people to pull me through, for example, people in my class, and most importantly, my parents. I really strove to do my best because my mum came from a humble background and worked very hard. I felt like I had to work as hard to pay her back.

What helped me through was being consistent with my studying and how I approached my work. I participated in class discussions actively and made sure I understood what was taught in class because whatever I could understand in class, I did not need to spend time outside of class to revisit. So, pay attention in class!”
