Salsa: A Little Courage and a Lot of Heart

Wesley Lim had never danced until he auditioned for SMU Caderas Latinas. The president of the salsa dance club has come a long way from getting dance tips off YouTube, to performing tricks on the dance floor. Wesley talks to us about getting over the fear of social dancing and some lessons that he’s picked up along his steep learning curve.

Finding Lightness Through Aikido

Marcus Teo, president of SMU Aikido, has an easy-going disposition that shows in his speech and especially how he tackles problems. The gentle business student shares some tips on how to keep positive and stay calm during tough times.

The Making of a National Sailor

At 21 years old, Kimberly Lim has travelled to more places than she can remember and covered more ground (and water) than most of us have.

Here’s What it’s Like to Lead a Student Union

As the governing body of 35 clubs, the SMU Sports Union has some lofty responsibilities. On top of that, the 2017 team is on a mission to ensure that every sportsman thrives not only in the area of sports, but also in the other aspects of life. To learn more about the inner workings of a student union, SMU Snapshots spoke to the man who leads the union in its 13th year running, Duncan Koh.

Building a Good Work Ethic

Carrying out day-to-day requirements is an easy habit to train. But when it comes to good work ethic, this trait can be challenging to develop. Because strong work ethic often leads to success in sports, great athletes already have that dedication. To learn how athletes develop their work ethic, SMU Snapshots had a chat with SSU finance secretary, Amanda Yeap, who is also a national floorball player and competes for SMU Floorball.
