Catherine Boey Xiao Wei
Catherine Boey is a classic example of how ITE has successfully groomed not only “work-ready” graduates, but also “world-ready” graduates who are capable of holding their own against their counter parts from anywhere in the world.
Catherine participated in the 42th WorldSkills Competition in Leipzig, Germany and with confidence and determination, the sweet and well-mannered girl edged out 21 other competitors internationally, bringing home a Gold Medal. She has also won a Medallion of Excellence from ASEAN Skills Competition and was the Gold Medalist for Beauty Therapy at WorldSkills Singapore 2012.
Catherine has the full package – good looks, sweet smile, a pleasant nature and excellent world-class skills. The former President of the Fashion & Glamour Club is now imparting her skills and knowledge to her juniors as a Teaching Associate in College East. She will soon be pursuing a three-year degree programme in Beauty & Spa Management in the University of Arts London.
Her advice to the younger students, “Choose a course that suits your interest. With a strong interest in the area, you will enjoy going to school and learn new things. You will get many opportunities to shine at ITE. Take advantage of them and work hard!”
