In Full Bloom 
Munifah’s love for floristry blossomed at ITE unexpectedly. A leap of faith prompted her to enrol in the Nitec in Floristry course, where she grew to see floristry as her calling.  
At ITE, Munifah actively immersed herself in various programmes to enrich her learning experience. Using her floristry skills, she led and facilitated a series of floral arrangement workshops for the community.

Munifah was also well-liked by her classmates for being a compassionate and helpful leader. For group assignments, she would choose to join groups with less motivated students so that she could help them to improve. 
From the Heart 
Munifah shared: "At ITE, I wanted to make the most out of the opportunities that were given to me.

"These opportunities not only made my education journey more meaningful, but also motivated me to learn more.

"They have also shaped my personal transformation.

"I used to be very shy, but I have since learnt to present myself better and be more confident."
Life after ITE

Munifah is pursuing a Diploma in Landscape Architecture at Singapore Polytechnic and aspires to work in the wedding industry and help couples with wedding decorations.
