Member Spotlight: Wee

Member Spotlight,

Meet Wee Ling!

weeWee Ling (she/her/hers) was born and raised in Singapore and still currently resides there. Wee is a Specialist of Outdoor Education at Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS).

Tell us a bit about what you do at your organization. 
I curate experiential programmes to engage students. From taking up student leadership roles in various interest areas, coaching students, partnership engagement for securing fundings and opportunities for students, setting up processes to aid students and staff as they navigate these programmes to other administrative work.
Tell us more about yourself! 
Recently I took up a coaching certification course and it has sharpened my knowledge and purpose in my career path. I enjoy working with people a lot, the chance to know them and guide them relates to me very much. The chance to hear their stories, challenges and uncertainties are such a privilege. I love the deliberation, connecting the dots and trying to make sense of the next steps that will gear them towards success. As I age, or rather grow more mature, I do worry about how to keep up with the physical demands of my specialisation. I am thankful to say that life has it's way of pointing out to me in directions that allows me to tap on what I am gifted with.
What excites you when you think about the future of Experiential Education?
Experiential Education is getting broader and more encompassing. There are so much opportunities and I am learning all the time as long as I keep an open mind.
Who or what inspires you?
1. People who challenge me, know when to step in to give me a little guidance/hint - they are like life coaches who are able to read timing so well; on when to step in and out to achieve the best developmental results.

2. People who dares to be different and think for the greater good of others.
In your free time, we can probably find you:
At home! I am an introvert where my mind can be completely free.
How long have you been involved with AEE?
For about a year. My institution encourages staff to join as it fits our work purpose of developing students in the area of Experiential Education. I saw it as a learning opportunity to be immerse with like-minded community.
What is the most rewarding part about being a Member of AEE?
The network!
Favorite Moment at AEE?
When I stumbled upon the topic of Adventure Therapy. It is just timely as I am currently interested in how Outdoor Education can serve in cultivating personal well-being.
