Alumnus Awarded Future Leaders in Tech Award
Congratulations to our Diploma in Cybersecurity & Digital Forensics alumnus Darren Ong Yan En, who was awarded the Singapore Computer Society Future Leaders in Tech Award. The Future Leaders in Technology Award recognises young people who are 30 and below who have a passion for infocomm and digital media, and have made outstanding contributions. Darren was nominated by his friends and lecturers and went through a rigorous selection process which involved a writeup and two interview rounds with professional tech leaders in the field.
“Winning this prestigious award feels surreal. I applied for this award to push my limits, initially thinking that I wouldn't even make it past the first round. However, I managed to get it and it serves as motivation for me to continue working hard! I would not be able to reach this far without the help from my family, lecturers, friends and loved ones. They've supported my entire journey in my ups and downs and I'm really grateful for them. I hope that this serves as a motivation to my fellow juniors that discipline and hard work is crucial in today's age,” said Darren.
Darren aspires to be an entrepreneur and hopes to run his own start-up in the future. Here's to a bright and successful future, Darren!
