At Imperial College London, Lejon was elected the first Southeast Asian Engineering Union President, integrating over 3600 students from diverse backgrounds into a highly dynamic and collaborative body.
As the elected representative for Schwarzman Scholars to the Tsinghua Graduate Union, Lejon led the inaugural choir of 19 nationalities to an award-winning performance for a 2500-strong audience. He pioneered the Singapore Deep Dive, an annual travel seminar for scholars to interact with 25 senior business and political leaders, including Singapore’s head of state. Leveraging his experience with China’s largest M&A fund-of-funds, he constructed methodologies that can value IP within M&A more precisely, winning the outstanding master’s thesis award and endorsements for publishing in Chinese and American journals.
