Xavier Low

Chief Executive of CYA
Xavier is the Chief Executive Officer of Cyber Youth Academy. His interests include Photography, Poetry and playing the Erhu. He is part of the Chinese Orchestra at SMU and has played the Erhu since the tender age of 8. Xavier is a recipient of the National Young Leader Award and was a 2020 Youth Action Challenge Finalist. Xavier strongly believes in the combined effort of youths and led a Design Thinking project at Isabella, Philippines, where they served underprivileged communities by changing their underlying processes. During his term as the president of the Chinese Orchestra, he reshaped the CCA to have a volunteering focus and clinched the SP Excellence and Model Student Award. He also co-ran a student startup, SAYOCODE, under the SP’s SPinoff programme, where he enthusiastically passed on knowledge and mentored his peers. Xavier had a Polytechnic with the IMDA Gold Medal and a Diploma with Merit in Business Information Technology in 2020. He is currently pursuing a degree in Information Systems at the Singapore Management University.

Xavier continues to serve various communities through volunteering for Meet the People sessions and helping households directly through a befriending programme. Xavier believes volunteering with the community is essential to serving them. Doing so has allowed him to realise the current systems in place; and the difficulties that various groups face with present ‘help’ provided by multiple organisations (e.g. grants, provisions etc.). He also often provides his Photography experience to Chengsan- Seletar CC through offering coverage to their various events. Xavier has aspirations to work in the Public Service to aid digitalisation efforts to push for more inclusive change methods. He hopes that one day, technology will be adopted and used by all members of society regardless of their background and status. He believes that only when such a level of inclusiveness is achieved can technology become the enabler it was promised to be.

INSHIRAH RAMJOO

Council Member
Inshirah Ramjoo is a self–driven and passionate individual who takes a positive leap of faith in every chapter of her life. Her decision to be part of the cyber youth committee members comes with the similar belief of youths interested in technology to develop passion and all-rounded professionals for the digital future.

Since her first day at Singapore Polytechnic, she has managed to give her all into every project she has worked towards with well recognition by her professors.
