Four USP alums have been placed in this year's Singapore Tatler's Generation T (Gen.T) List, unveiled this month. They are:

Ho Jia Jian (Mechanical Engineering + USP, Class of 2011), CEO of Viddsee

Muhammad Shamir Bin Abdul Rahim (Life Sciences + USP, Class of 2007), CEO of VersaFleet
Dr Li Jingmei (Life Sciences + USP, Class of 2006), Senior Research Scientist at Genome Institute of Singapore

Gen.T List identifies 50 of the brightest connectors, creative visionaries, influential innovators and disruptive talents in Singapore, among 180 nominees. To be considered for the list, a nominee has to have had a significant achievement in the last 18 months. The list has presence in Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines, China, Taiwan, Thailand and Indonesia. In its third edition this year, the list is made up of individuals age 40 and under from various industries.

Jia Jian was also featured on the cover of Singapore Tatler magazine May 2018 issue, where he shared about the cause and community he holds close to his heart. The motivation behind Viddsee is to give film-makers a regional stage to share their work. Read his story HERE.

We are immensely proud that USP alums are breaking boundaries and making a difference in Singapore and the world today. Congrats for the recognition, folks!
