It’s never too late to learn and graduate from the best side of your class.

Twenty years ago, Ms. Sophia Ho, now 48, co-founded Vintedge, a digital agency that provides digital marketing and professional technical services.

Hoping to grow her business, she recently decided to retrain herself.

Ms. Ho, who previously earned a degree in visual communications from Temasek Polytechnic, recently told The New Paper, “The competitive landscape in the industry has changed over the years. We need to improve our business strategy to be more sustainable.

“I had been learning on the job for the past 18 years and I realized there were gaps in my understanding of business management.”

While Ms. Ho has always felt she was not academically inclined, even because she suspected she was suffering from undiagnosed dyslexia, she will graduate from Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) next Tuesday with a degree of merit in business practice.

NEARLY PERFECT GPA

She is the only one to receive the Achieve Group Prize for the most outstanding academic achievement in the cohort. Ms. Ho scored an almost perfect point average of 3.93.

The secret behind her most recent academic success?

Her 11-year-old son.

“Observing him made me realize that learning is natural for people and a result of our curiosity,” said Ms. Ho, reinforcing what she had learned in school by applying it in her business.

“Learning and getting good grades are two different things … When I try to understand, grades come naturally.

“Learning is not limited by age, it is only limited by mindset. We are unique and full of potential, so always believe that the best is yet to come.”

At NP’s graduation for the Class of 2021, which kicked off yesterday, national table tennis champion Tan En Hui, 21, also graduated with a merit diploma in business administration.

She received the Activa Media award for best academic achievement in entrepreneurship.

Previously she studied at the Singapore Sports School, but she started her journey at NP through the on-going trajectory program, which gave her the flexibility to train and compete without compromising her studies.

ASPIRATION

She said, “I chose NP for her business course because I aspire to be an entrepreneur.”

As a student athlete, she had to be disciplined when it came to studying in competitions.

Her efforts have paid off and she will pursue a bachelor’s degree in business management from Singapore Management University.

Outside of school, she participated in voluntary efforts to provide welfare packages for the elderly and low-income families.

“I think it’s important to give back to the community and not just be on the receiving end.”
