Recently, I had the honour of being invited to speak at Tembusu College not once, but twice(!), on the topic of how I use social media in my work as an artist. It was a very interesting discussion with the students about the various aspects of social media use, from how we actually use it, the kind of audiences we interact with, and even the technology itself.
On the first week (25 Mar) I was paired with Brenda Tan, a social media influencer who focuses on beauty and lifestyle topics such as skincare products and food. On the second week (1 Apr) my fellow panelist was Charissa Goh, a YouTuber who amassed her following through Kpop dance video tutorials.
It was an educational and eye opening experience for myself as well to be able to discuss the different ways all three of us use social media, and of course the similarities too. And I was happy to be able to come back to my alma mater and contribute to the community through the work that I do. Special thanks to Dr Connor Graham for putting the events together and inviting me to speak.
Here are photos from the second week, taken by the university (NUS)’s official photographer.
