HAT

Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Slytherin.

Shane CHEN

In J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, every student in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is sorted into one of these four houses by the Sorting Hat. The Sorting Hat reads each student’s qualities before placing them in the most appropriate house. In our daily life, we exercise curation in similar ways like the Sorting Hat. This catalogue documents some of my own works of curation. Let the sorting begin!


USP Instagram As an USP Ambassador, I spearheaded USP Instagram, a marketing initiative to promote USP to prospective students via social media. Every week my team and I would share two to three posts on this account, showcasing USP’s community, academic activities, and extra-curricular opportunities in a thoughtful and systematic manner.


My Resume As part of BFS1001 Personal Development and Career Management, I learnt how to craft and maintain a resume for myself. In my resume, I feature the education I receive, some awards and achievements, and specific work and extra-curricular experiences. I would also tweak the content depending on the purpose and audience of my resume.


My Pocket I have an account with Pocket, an application service for managing a reading list of articles from the Internet. From the recommended list of articles Pocket sends me each day, I would choose some to either read right away or add them for future reading. They are usually pieces about politics, technology, finance and self-help.


Project about Literacy and Industrial Design As part of a study for ULT2299D The Politics of Language and Literacy in Singapore, I interviewed Hui Qing, an industrial designer, and learnt about Industrial Design, her design projects, and literacy involved in this form of art. From multiple interview clips, notes from the interviews, notes from this class, and research I did for this study, I distilled and organized all the content into a coherent and meaningful video presentation and sketchbook.
