Ms Haley Augustin Promsuwan

Residential Assistant Tembusu College National University of Singapore

Haley is a third-year undergraduate in Economics. After switching her major twice, she finally figured out that she enjoys learning about how the economy shapes many aspects of the world today.

In the past two years, Haley has been a member of the Love Tembusu core team, planning mental health workshops geared towards promoting help-seeking and help-giving behaviours. Haley can also be found at Tmentors sessions on Saturday mornings or attending a TBakes session every once in a while. She enjoys reminding everyone that she has very strong Malaysian roots and that she lives right across the border. With that being said, you will find that she is mostly in on weekends as she strongly dislikes navigating through Friday night causeway traffic. 

Beyond academics and Tembusu, Haley is a part of the NUSChoir and enjoys anything music related. If you see her along the corridor, do 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.
