Alief Fiqhry Bin Ayob - Pathlight School
Alief Ayob joined Pathlight at the age of 10. Initially placed in the school’s academic track, he faced challenges accessing the national curriculum and was transferred to the Vocational Track.

A self-directed learner, Alief excelled in the Vocational track and demonstrated high work-readiness capability. He understood the importance of independence and self-sufficiency and proactively sought work exposure where he could put his skills to the test.

A cheerful and confident student who enjoyed dancing, Alief was also talent-spotted and placed in the school’s Dance Talent Development Programme. Alief often took the lead to guide his juniors and participated in various national and school-wide competitions and events.

Alief graduated from Pathlight School in 2019 and is currently undergoing job training under the Autism Resource Centre’s Employability and Employment Centre at Professor Brawn.

A vocal and talented artist, Jolie was discovered for her artistic talent in 2015 and placed in the school’s award-winning Artist Development Programme (ADP). She has since found her voice through her Art and uses her talent to champion causes close to her heart. These include raising awareness of the abilities of people on the autism spectrum like herself, and for causes such as animal welfare and environment conservation.

Jolie has grown from a shy individual who used to struggle with regulating her emotions and behaviour, into a confident young lady who speaks eloquently and passionately about the causes she supports. She has contributed numerous art pieces to autism awareness campaigns and showcases her work at local and international events to raise funds for the Autism Resource Centre (Singapore). She collaborated with multi-national ride-hailing company Grab and national swimmer Joseph Schooling to promote car-pooling and its environmental and societal benefits. She also contributed illustrations for a book titled “Who Will Be in Court” to help vulnerable witnesses navigate the criminal justice process.

With her artistic talent and passion to advocate for social causes, Jolie is an inspirational voice and model for the autism community.
Jordan Lim Whey Cher
Primary 6

Jordan Lim Whey Cher - Pathlight School
Jordan is a driven, well-liked student leader and aspiring swimmer. Diagnosed with autism at the age of 3, he had speech delay and found it difficult to focus, understand instructions and coordinate his movements. However, with his resilience and positive spirit, Jordan overcame them all.

Today, Jordan is an integral member of the school’s Student Council team, who takes ownership of his responsibilities and puts his best effort in seeing them through. He has shown true courage and determination in overcoming his learning difficulties.

Jordan started learning Swimming and Taekwondo at the age of 7 and puts in extra effort to understand complex instructions and practise his movements. Since his maiden swimming competition in 2016, he has gone on to win 11 medals in national para swimming championships, including 4 gold medals, and a ‘Best Individual Performance’ award. He also achieved a Junior Black Belt (First Poom) in Taekwondo.

Jordan has shown that he is an overcomer. While he still has his fears and anxieties, he has not allowed them to stop him from pursuing his dreams – to represent Singapore in swimming – and making his dreams come true.
