Hear stories and advice from previous Award recipients

Kate Goodfruit
"It is arguably the best experience I have had to date, as I experienced the world of diplomacy first-hand through interning at the Australian Embassy, developed networks and connections with leaders around the globe, and reinforced confidence in myself and my abilities to achieve."
Yanyan Hong
"TED2018 was a life-changing experience and it was the most intellectually stimulating and satisfying event that I have ever been to. This experience enhanced my social networking skills, translation skills and most importantly it made me believe in the greatest potentials of ourselves."
Lewis Jones
"There were so many incredible experiences that came from the Employability Award program. It encouraged me to participate in a wide variety of activities beyond what I would usually consider, and also exposed me to a wide variety of employers, thought leaders and other high-achieving students."
