She discovered her calling after graduating from Republic Polytechnic in 2010.
Miss Syidda Amron, 25, who completed a Diploma in Biomedical Sciences, found great joy in doing volunteer work with underprivileged youth through programmes organised by organisations like the Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP) during her post-graduation months.
So she decided to read a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with Counselling at TMC Academy to better help troubled youth.
The degree programme, which is credited by the University of Greenwich in the UK, lasts up to 16 months.
Miss Syidda, who completed a related higher diploma course at TMC Academy prior to reading her part-time degree programme, said: "Volunteering with young people, especially those who are underprivileged, is very meaningful to me.
"I enjoy being their mentor and am happy to help them in any way I can.
"I believe that my degree programme can help me fulfil my dream of becoming a professional counsellor one day."
Miss Syidda said that the subjects she studies are applicable to real situations.
