Visibly proud, Associate Professor Dr Irene Tan Ai Lian (Vice-Chancellor, VUC) asked the graduates to reflect on what graduation means for them as “the end of something is always the beginning of something new. Take life as it comes. As Charles R. Swindoll said, ‘Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it.’"
"Use the knowledge you have received to improve your family circumstances and to help others who may cross your path one day" she continued. "John Dewey famously said, ‘Education is not preparation for life, it is life itself.’ So, please keep learning and challenging yourselves!"
