#HumansOfSUSS: “What is my idea of fun? Reading. I derive immense pleasure from it since I get to learn too. I can read at my own time and pace. There is nothing like reading a piece of work so articulate, precise, and careful that you see what the author paints with mere words. Furthermore, in an era of unprecedented access to (free) knowledge, fun is just one tap away. . If I could go back in time and give my younger self advice, what would it be? Three things – work harder, read more and be open to learning new things! There are lessons to be learned everywhere. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes even as you learn from the mistakes of others. Choose to be a jack of all trades, but master of one. . I look up to my mother who has shaped my being and imparted countless lessons to me in an era without rulebooks, guides, or tutorials. She taught me to be early when meeting people. If you honour the other person’s time, you will be early. Being early also shows commitment to all parties. . Yeo Wei Yong is a Sociology with Communication student who is also leading a team of Sign Language Interpreters and Notetakers at The Singapore Association for the Deaf. He leads the Communication Access section under the Deaf Access Services (DAS) department to meet the communication access needs of the Deaf and Hard-of-hearing community. . . . #SUSSG #singaporelife #singapore #education #socialsciences #higherlearning #lifelonglearning #universitylife #reading #read #books #communication #sociology
