SP scholar Elysia Low has continually proven her mettle as a Management Associate in the organisation.

It’s unusual to find a female as inclined to engineering as 24-year-old Elysia Low.
Her interest in the subject was sown in her primary school years when she used to be a habitué at her uncle’s mechanic workshop, before the word “physics” made any sense to her.
“I started going to his shop when I was in primary school because it was near my house, and since both my parents were working,” Elysia shares. “Although it was just a car repair shop, there were many interesting gadgets to play with which I couldn’t find at home. And I didn’t have to worry about anything getting spoilt because there were always people who would repair them later!”
Years down the road, her experience of working on research projects as a student at Hwa Chong Institution further strengthened her inclinations towards the engineering field.
