Ms Leong Sih-Zau

Residential Assistant Tembusu College National University of Singapore

Sih-Zau is a fourth-year undergraduate majoring in Psychology (and dabbling in philosophy too!). She loves learning about how people think, and hopes to be a psychologist one day. She enjoys giving back to the college, and has served in her previous house committee and the ambassadorial team.

Sih-Zau might sometimes be caught sipping on coffee and attempting to study, or more realistically, lazing around in her room watching a Youtube video. If you don't find her there, try the MPH instead, where she sometimes spends her time playing tchoukball. She would be more than happy to introduce anyone to the sport!

As it's her last year in the college, she wants to do what she can to make sure her residents feel as comforted by the college as she has felt these years. Feel free to drop her a text if you'd like to chat; she's more than happy to lend a listening ear!

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.
