Q: Tell us more about yourself and your schooling life at ITE College East?
Hello everyone! My name is Chloe Kong, and I am currently an intern at DAWN Singapore.

I will be graduating from my ITE Accounting course in 2024. My academic journey at ITE has been a crucible for my personal and intellectual growth. The challenges were greater, but so were the rewards. From late-night study sessions to unforgettable memories made in school with my friends, ITE has shaped my work ethic, resilience, and passion for exploring new horizons. Outside of school and internship, I have found solace in crocheting. To me, it has grown beyond a craft to become my passion and a therapeutic journey that allows me to express creativity, find mindfulness, and create tangible pieces for my loved ones.

Q: How has your internship experience at DAWN been so far?
The past 4 months have been a transformative journey for me!

This internship has provided me with invaluable insights into the professional world, allowing me to develop both personally and academically. I was exposed to real-world challenges that demanded adaptability, problem-solving skills, and a willingness to learn. Every task, whether big or small, contributed to my growth, and I embraced each opportunity as a chance to enhance my skill set. I am appreciative of the things I learnt and the progress I made throughout my internship. I have gained knowledge and experiences that go much beyond what can be learned in a conventional classroom. I am excited to use the knowledge gained from this internship to further my professional growth and look forward to putting them into practice in my future undertakings.

Q: What do you hope to achieve, both during this internship and your future plans?
Embarking on this internship I hope to achieve skill enhancement, professional exposure as well as fostering new relationships. My primary objective is to enhance and diversify my skills. I aspire to deepen my understandings of Accounting, honing both technical and soft skills that are crucial in the working world. Another goal is to gain an understanding of different work components that DAWN handles. I am eager to immerse myself in the day-to-day operations, learning about industry practices and comprehend the nuances that textbooks cannot capture. Lastly, building meaningful relationships with my colleagues is a key focus as well. I hope to network with professionals and mentors who can offer guidance and insights. Establishing these relationships will not only enrich my internship experience but also contribute to my long-term professional growth.

As for my future plans, I hope to carve out a career in the world of law & justice. From a young age, I have been captivated by the prospects of advocating for others, upholding the principles of fairness, and contributing to a fair & just society. It has fueled my ambition to become a lawyer. As I embark on this journey, my path is guided by a passion for justice and a commitment to making a positive impact.
