The Pons Talk Ep. 08: Passion and Profession


"There are many roads in front you. You either pick one or build your own. But whichever you choose, you always have the opportunity to choose again, to change course and to explore something different. Choose and see how it turns out."

Welcome back to The Pons Talk! In this inspiring episode, our guest Cindy Han, a Dulwich College Suzhou alumna and recent Princeton graduate, shares with Stephanie, a student at Dulwich International High School Zhuhai, how her passions for entrepreneurship, art, engineering and science have guided her on a colourful journey from Dulwich to Princeton and further into professional life.
