THE NGEE ANN KONGSI GOLD MEDAL AWARD WINNER
Siti Nurshamira Bte Sabri
Higher Nitec in Sport Management
ITE College East
Sporting a New Look
Since secondary school days, Nurshamira has always been keen on sports. When she saw coaches and sport physicians during football matches, her curiosity about their roles led to an interest in ITE’s Sport Management course. The outgoing youth realised it is not only about fitness and health, but also about organising sporting and recreational events effectively. She is glad that she could marry her interest in sports with her desire to help others, in her dream job as a Sport Physician.
Driven by a strong passion in volunteerism, Nurshamira also actively sought ways beyond her course, to help others. Wearing several hats – as a team leader, facilitator and volunteer, she spearheaded various community service initiatives in school. One of her key contributions was with Operation Hands-On, in leading the distribution of hand sanitisers and face masks to the elderly, bus drivers, cleaners and foreign workers due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A hardworking and caring youth, Nurshamira thrived in her course and volunteering pursuits. Her constant exposure to community service projects shaped her views on the desired characteristics of a true leader. She strives to be a leader who is trustworthy and will never fail to be there for others.
It’s Truly Exciting
“ITE forms a significant part in my life. My lecturers constantly supported me through the years in my course of study. I motivate myself by stepping up to any challenges and accepting feedback as positive comments. To me, ITE stands for ‘It’s Truly Exciting’ as the school is full of opportunities for us to grasp and achieve new learning experiences.”
Nurshamira is currently pursuing a Diploma in Sports and Exercise Sciences at Republic Polytechnic. She aspires to be a Sport Physician in future.
