Ms Leong Sih-Zau

Resident Assistant Tembusu College National University of Singapore

Sih-Zau is a third-year undergraduate currently majoring in Psychology (and dabbling in philosophy too!). She loves learning about how people work and think, and dreams of being a child psychologist one day.

Having been in the Saola Zone Committee and Ponya House Committee in her first year, Sih-Zau loves interacting with people, and is excited to give back to the community. If you don't find her lazing around in her room, try the MPH instead, where she spends her time playing tchoukball. She would be more than happy to introduce anyone to the sport! You may also catch her improving her latte art at coffeehouse, or hosting a guest as a Tembusu Ambassador.

In her free time, Sih-Zau enjoys jamming to music, watching Netflix, sipping on coffee (or apple juice!) and hanging out with her friends. She loves Studio Ghibli, Korean dramas, animes, and TV shows in general, so she would likely be more than happy to chat about the latest show! Feel free to catch her over a meal or coffee any time - her door is always open for a chat!

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.
