Nick Ng Tet Shin (left), who studied for a Diploma in Heritage Cuisine at BERJAYA University College, said: “At age 37, I made a drastic decision which I think not many would dare to do it. I quit my job and made a career change. I had always been in the sales industry, from media to building materials. Two years ago, I walked into BERJAYA University College and enrolled for a Diploma in Heritage Cuisine. The skills I have gained here and the knowledge imparted by the Master Chefs has shaped my confidence. In 2019, I was given a chance to participate in the 6th Penang International Halal Chefs Challenge.

“Winning the Bronze medal against other chefs as a student chef was truly a great achievement. So, here I am today – a different person. In a month’s time, I’ll be graduating as a chef. I followed my passion, and now I lead a new life. No regrets!”
