They didn’t let Asperger’s define their JC years

With eloquence and poise, Mr Choo Kwang Zhee impressed the audience at a Model United Nations event.

The former Pioneer Junior College (PJC) student even took home a Verbal Commendation award.

But speaking in public, making eye contact and using hand gestures – these things do not come naturally to Mr Choo, 18. He has Asperger’s syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder in which reading social cues and maintaining eye contact is challenging.

Speaking to The New Paper last Friday, he said the greatest challenge during his two years in PJC was the oral presentation section of Project Work, a compulsory subject he completed in 2016.

“I found it challenging to understand body language, maintain eye contact and appropriately use hand signals when presenting,” he said.

But Mr Choo did not let this stop him. He practised hard every day with the help of his classmates and teacher, Ms Jane Lee, and scored an A for the subject.
