Harrell Erik Wong Chen Keong is a course director and senior lecturer of Interior Design Department. He recently married the love of his life and is settling down happily. But the story of his life did not have a merry beginning. Coming from a very poor family, he had to start working at the age of 17 just to save up for his school fees. Later on, he was diagnosed with an incurable disease. But due to his “never give up spirit”, he recovered and is now in remission. Today, he owns an interior design firm. He is also eager to learn the latest technology and software. Through his perseverance in life and hardwork, he has overcome all obstacles. Therefore, he was awarded with the Professional Spirit Award by TOA for inspiring everyone around him. Congratulations!
