“There is no challenge that is insurmountable, there will always be an alternative way out. You just need to find it”.
A personal mantra that helped Najulah push himself beyond his limitations and achieve greatness. Indeed, the Diploma in Business Infocomm Technology (DBIT) student will be graduating this May as one of the top eight graduates of SP.
Najulah has brittle bone disease, and a simple fall fractured his legs when he was a kid. Since then, he has been using a wheelchair for his own safety. Undeterred, Najulah stayed positive and saw each obstacle as a stepping stone to something better.
Four years ago, he chose to enrol in Polytechnic Foundation Programme to study DBIT as he was fascinated with business analytics and liked the idea of combining it with IT. Najulah’s potential was unleashed in SP and he went on to become a Microsoft Youthspark scholar and SP Model Student. He also developed apps with his DIT friends for the special needs, one of which is Happy Wheels, a location app that helps find wheelchair accessible routes. Their efforts won the People’s Choice Award and commended by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in his FB post.
Najulah has earned a spot in Singapore Management University to study Information Systems. He hopes to be a software developer and use his skills to improve the quality of life for the community.
