In the spirit of SMU Arts Festival (7-16 September), we shine the spotlight on two inspiring alumni who have ardently pursued a career in the arts. Singer-songwriter Hubert Ng (BBM 2017), better known as Yuzhe (黃宇哲) in the Mandopop scene, grabbed the opportunity during his exchange programme to Taiwan to break into its notoriously competitive music market. Meanwhile, Jasmine Teh (BSc(ISM) 2012)is a full-time storyteller through her illuminating and moving documentary films shedding light on myriad unsung heroes of Singapore. Hubert and Jasmine are just two of many alumni who have decided to chase their "arty fartsy" dreams against innumerous odds and naysayers, and through sheer grit and determination have made meaningful impact in their respective industries. Join us as we celebrate their accomplishments and wish them well on their budding journeys.

1 September 2018 was a popular day for gatherings, as not one, but two alumni chapters held their get-togethers on that Saturday. Taking advantage of the rare good weather, the London Alumni Chapter held their annual summer picnic at the scenic Regent Park.
Meanwhile, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Alumni Chapter also congregated for Singaporean fare in Dubai, joined by Singapore's Consul-General to Dubai, Mr Low Pit Chen. Fruitful discussions abound, with many plans for future alumni activities in Dubai and Abu Dhabi!
Alumni in Bangalore took the opportunity to attend the SMU Business Dialogue: War For Talent- Navigating Digital India, held on 4 September, birthing the start of the Bangalore Alumni Chapter!
