Ms. Jio Huizhen

Resident Assistant Tembusu College National University of Singapore

Hui Zhen is currently a Third Year student, pursuing her degree in Social Work. Her choice to study Social Work stems from a place of love and care for all Human beings. While most Social Work Undergraduates choose a different Residential College, Tembusu College has been one of her best decisions in University thus far.

Relationship building is very important to Hui Zhen, and she spends most of her time in Tembusu having intriguing and fulfilling conversations with those around her. When she is not being lazy, Hui Zhen enjoys playing Floorball and is part of Tembusu’s Floorball IG. Last year, she also helped to start up Lovetembusu, a group that was created to raise awareness of mental illnesses in the College. In doing so, she hopes to contribute to the inclusive nature of Tembusu, the HOME of possibilities.

Despite being new to Tancho, Hui Zhen (who is natural inquisitive, also known as KPO) will do her best to continue being an approachable source of help and listening ear to all incoming freshmen and seniors alike. She certainly looks forward to the new experiences she will have in the upcoming year as a Residential assistant. 

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.
