“Good afternoon! Is this Ming Tsu? We are calling from the Sunway Scholarship Unit to inform you that you have secured the Sunway Excellence Scholarship. Congratulations!!” Immediately after I hung up the phone, I ran to my dad, “pa, remember the interview I had for my scholarship a few weeks ago?! They just called and told me I got the offer!!” It was one of the best days I had; I could still remember how exhilarated I felt, and I couldn’t help but smile and skip around for the entire day. And thus began #MySunwayStory.
Hi! I am Ming Tsu, from Penang Island. A Penangite living near the coast that loves transforming the freshest seafood into delectable dishes. And yes, I have a great passion for cooking and constantly enjoy exploring new recipes. Thus, I decided to pursue a degree in International Hospitality Management.
‘If you genuinely want something hard enough, life eventually gives it to you.’ is a quote that I firmly live by. Therefore, since my foundation years, I have always set my sights on attaining the Sunway Excellence Scholarship. To me, having a goal motivates me to always strive to push myself and become better. Thus, I always loved to keep myself occupied in the happenings of the school. Fortunately, Sunway University offers various unique clubs and societies for students to indulge in. While at University, I was part of AIESEC and Sunway Hospitality Club. My experience in these clubs provided a platform to network with other talented and enthusiastic individuals and even broaden my horizon toward various perspectives. Indeed, one of the best things I was exposed to was the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which Sunway University greatly emphasizes. Even in AIESEC, we always planned projects revolving around the SDGs; it was truly remarkable to witness our hard work create tangible positive impacts on society.
Now that I have graduated, I look forward to channeling all the various skills and knowledge that Sunway University has equipped me with into my upcoming business venture. I hope my passion for the F&B industry will always be there with me while I deliver products and services that touch the hearts and souls of people. In ten years, if I had the chance, I wish to bring my success back to Sunway and celebrate Sunway’s success in reaching another milestone in its journey together.
