Ms Nikki Weng Le Tian

Resident Assistant Tembusu College National University of Singapore

Nikki is a third year geography undergraduate student with a minor in geographical information systems and urban studies.

Tembusu has given her the opportunity to meet new people and step out of her comfort zone to try new things such as joining the Tancho House Committee, Tembusu Ambassadors and the many sports IGs. Nikki also loves the sunset view from the Tancho floors and the pantry chats where new friendships are made!

After being away from Tembusu for a semester, she is looking forward to coming back to the community, making new friends and throwing herself back into college activities again! Nikki is always down for sunset jios, streaming the latest red velvet comeback or just to have 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.
