"I have always wanted to be a social scientist, so this course really corresponds with my interests. I understood more about the hidden problems of Singaporean communities that other tourists or even local people might have ignored. Workshops gave me a better understanding about issues, and I comprehend the importance of solving them through my personal experience"
