Mr Teo Zhi Feng

Resident Assistant Tembusu College National University of Singapore

Zhi Feng is a third-year undergraduate double majoring in Economics and Business Analytics. He is passionate about understanding the world through the lens of Economics and applying his coding knowledge to solve problems.


He has been active in Tembusu Coffeehouse and Volleyball. He is also a Tembusu Ambassador and was previously the student coordinator for Open House 2021. On special occasions, you might see him in suits hosting guests during Tembusu Forums or engaging with prospective students during outreaches. Chances are if you ask him why Tembusu, you will be in for a long and interesting conversation. Hit him up if you want to chat about life in Tembusu or anything in general!


Having lived in Australia for over a year, the thing he misses the most is short, friendly lift conversations with total strangers. He is really passionate to listen to people’s stories. If you see him in the lifts, along the corridors or anywhere around the college, do feel free to say hi!

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
