NUS Geography Majors Tea 2020

14 February

Inspiring Geographers Return to Their Alma Mater

Mr Alexius Yeo ('10) and Mr Sarabjeet Singh ('11) were special guests at the NUS Geography Majors Tea 2020 on 14 February to talk to students about their career achievements and to inspire them to follow their dreams. 

Just days before the event, Mr Singh had visited the Istana with his family where Singapore President Mdm Halimah Yacob (Law '78) presented him a gift for being a nominee of The Straits Times Singaporean of the Year 2019. As President of the Young Sikh Association in Singapore, Mr Singh was recognised for his Association’s work at building bridges between people of different ethnic groups in the community.

Mr Yeo's dream when he was a student was to plant more fruit trees and vegetables in Singapore, and that is exactly what he did upon commencement. He is now a permaculture practitioner and educator, and also the founder of Project 33, a project aimed at encouraging community gardeners to give away a third of their harvest. 

Around 50 students and faculty members attended the event, and over refreshments, asked the alumni further questions about their careers. Mr Singh summed up the event perfectly when he called it a “sweet and fruitful homecoming”.
