You need to follow your heart more because if  you're not passionately engaged in pursuing something, you'll never be able to follow through for long.”

Ms Saira Kuttan

ECG Counsellor, NYJC

Ms Kuttan, who serves as the ECG Counsellor for Nanyang JC, loves to work with students. Before becoming an ECG Counsellor in 2016, she assisted undergraduates on issues ranging from admissions to academic matters as the programme manager at Nanyang Technological University’s Wee Kim Wee School of Communication. She believes that self-exploration is crucial to finding the right career path. “Exploring your likes and dislikes will help you understand your strengths better and allow you to make clearer career choices,” she says. “It’s not something that happens overnight, so students should take all the time they need to understand who they are as a person; be proud of who they are and what they stand for.” This is a key message that she shares with students: continually develop your interests, abilities and passion, and use them to contribute meaningfully to society in your careers. So if students are facing the age-old conundrum of following one’s heart versus following one’s head, what advice does she give? “I’d say follow both,” she replies, “but you need to follow your heart more because if you’re not passionately engaged in pursuing something, you’ll never be able to follow through for long.”
