Many marvel at the phenomenal growth and progress that Singapore has achieved, from a humble fishing village to the cosmopolitan city it is today. Yet they tend to overlook the pillars on which our success was built upon.

The maritime industry has contributed significantly to Singapore’s economic success and she would not have become the country she is today without it. I knew then that I could not go wrong with a career in the maritime industry,” 26-year-old Melody Cheng elucidates, explaining why she decided to take up a maritime scholarship.
