My Life as an Emcee in NYP

My life as an emcee in NYP is an interesting one indeed. We, the members of the club, meet up regularly to plan for upcoming events, have lunch together as a team, and decide how to work together to improve our club. We also dine with our friends from other clubs, which results in us forming close, unshakable bonds. It is this habit that has helped the club grow and I’m proud to be a member of the Emcee Club.

The Prison Within: A Musical by Diploma in Social Sciences students

After 3 months of intense preparation, 52 Year 2 Diploma in Social Sciences (Social Work) students, including myself, finally staged our first musical production: The Prison Within, as part of our Communication & Public Education module!

The musical, a collaboration between NYP and CARE Network’s Yellow Ribbon Project, aimed to promote greater public support for the rehabilitation and reintegration of ex-offenders into our society.

 The Prison Within was a musical drama specially crafted to raise awareness of not only the trauma and stigma an ex-offender has to live with, but also focused on what the families of ex-offenders go through; as well as how an individual’s incarceration can affect the communication and dynamics within a family, and even outside the family.

No Dream is too Small for Fariza Begum

“You will never know. Whatever situation you find yourself in, even though you may not like it at first, could be a very big opportunity for you,” said Fariza Begum.

This was how Fariza, an NYP alumnus, carved out a name for herself in Floorball. The Diploma in Business Management graduate was very involved with the Floorball team during her years in NYP.  Fariza was a goalkeeper and helped her team clinch several titles at the inter Polytechnic-ITE (POL-ITE) Games and Inter-Varsity-Polytechnic (IVP) games.
