Goh Liu Ying

Chief Operating Officer, Operations Division, Cyber Youth Singapore
A firm believer of “a smooth sea never made a skilled sailor”, Liu Ying often seeks out challenges and seized opportunities presented to her to promote academic and personal development and view failures/setbacks as opportunities for growth. Having taken an unconventional education route, Liu Ying accidentally found her passion in Accounting at the Institute of Technical Education, where she graduated as the Gold Medalist and was awarded the Outstanding Graduate Award, along with the ITE CCA Medal.

At Singapore Polytechnic, Liu Ying busied herself in CCAs, leading multiple events while in the executive committee of two clubs, the SP BP Mentoring Club and the School of Business Club. In the latter, she championed and helped revamp how the club organised community service activities, from ad hoc volunteering to connecting with VWOs and having students organise and lead events instead.

Today, Liu Ying is pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Accountancy and is looking forward to joining the audit profession upon completion of 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 believes that only when such a level of inclusiveness is achieved can technology become the enabler it was promised to be.
