My father is a role model to me. I used to help him by making sure all marked papers were in place. His being a medical practitioner and a dedicated professor was an eye-opener. I thought then, I wish to be a professor, to share, impart and make sure that my students not only understood the lectures, memorised and passed the exams, but that, the information I shared is relevant to their future careers. I do not teach mere academic courses. I teach communication of emotions, marketing of lifestyles, theories of existence & humanity and strategies of living. They are based on my experiences too, not prejudices or readings alone. I want to teach my students that- the art of learning is a privilege. It is a treasure in a secret chest of destiny, which, only they can open and set free forever!

My mom - since young, she made sure I get to the best school, learned the best education, read many books, watched movie and met many people. Thank you dad and mom - for the commitment and dedication to give me only the best.

Clifford too, my dearest friend and partner in life. He knew how important
it is to further my education…

And to all my students… from you all I learned and in the process, got energised.
You are amazing!

Here’s is a collection of my student’s comments about “the Pamela Wildheart”
Lectures…Thank you dear students for your thoughts...

Unlike most lecturers, Pamela loved sharing her experiences with us -from the times she used to work at the BirdPark to how she started pursuing her dream as a musician. She was consistently filled with joy and life- she is certainly a live & breathing inspiration to many. Her lectures were always filled with excitement and animation. Never a dull moment, even when it came to the submission of our final project! Instead of always following the usual, Pamela encouraged our creativity and innovation to flow freely. I most definitely enjoyed the 3 semesters spent with her and
I wish her all the best in whatever she does!

Relations & New Media & Technology

Ms Pamela is an inspiration to me. Although she taught us for only a short but intensive duration of 5days, I've learnt much from her. She inspires me with the things she has done, her achievements and most importantly- her attitude and passion in everything she does-be it in lecturing, making music and being in the public relations field. One of the most important things she taught me is that-- you should never be afraid to try different things. After all, you never know until you try. Thank you again for the wonderful 5 days :)

Alyssa Bianca Prenda,
Public Relations: Strategic Planning & Management

It’s hard to find a lecturer who teaches with passion and love. Pamela successfully accomplishes these and delivers the module in ways that are interactive and engaging. Thank you Pam! :)
Live it Loud!

Benjamin Benism Zhou,
Introduction to Public Relations

I really enjoy being taught by Pamela. She made the subject I studied really twice more fun. I’m doing my degree now and find that everything she taught me was really useful. I’m really lucky to have Pamela as my lecturer. I really wish she could teach me again.

Debora Wisye Wiratno,
Principles of Public Relations

Where she might be petite in stature, Pamela Wildheart's personality and exuberance is somewhat larger than life. She is amongst a rare breed of educators who possess the ability to transform the learning process by tearing away the monotony and imposing her undeniable passion and zest for life. Her care and willingness to assist in the learning process, coupled with her colorful anecdotes and experiences, have made attending her lectures both joyful and extremely informative.
I am very fortunate to have been her student.

Divian Nair,
Foundations of Mass Communication, Principles of Public
Relations & New Media & Technology

You're a cool, multi-talented lecturer who knows what you're teaching 'cause you've been through many careers in the media industry. You have a wide experience so we're lucky to have you taught us new things. I'm glad I have a rock star teacher!

Farhani Ferhanie ,
Principles of Public Relations & New Media & Technology

Pamela Wildheart is a wonderful teacher - there is passion, energy, and humour in each of her lessons. What remains consistent is her push for her students to think further, better, and wider; to not reject a wacky idea; and the importance of being able to package a complex idea into a simple, easily understood summation.

Hamizah Azmee,
Principles of Public Relations

Pamela Wildheart… without her, my student days wouldn't be as colourful, joyful, and exciting as it was! She has this amazing energy when she talks. I love it. Her energetic gestures and lively discussions excite me to come to class. Sometimes, I wonder, what is it like to be her... to have loads of fun experiences in the media industry and to have this positive attitude towards life. She is a great lecturer! Also, an awesome, talented singer! way to go Pam :)

Intania Primasari Prionggo,

You gave real life experiences as example -which is more interesting!

Jiaen Koh,
Foundations of Mass Communications

I couldn't believe it when I found out that Pamela Wildheart is my lecturer!!! So cool... her hair, her style, her dress sense.... I was so happy and excited. As a lecturer, I am so honoured to have Pamela- sharing her immense wealth of experience. She is truly a MEDIA PRACTITIONER... in fact.... I think she is the personification of MEDIA itself.... She stands firm in what she believes not afraid to speak her mind. As a media person, she is up-to-date with trends and technology. She knows what works and what doesn't. She had shared invaluable knowledge to her students. I've benefited so much from her class. It’s humbling that she’s so personable to her students too. Thank you for being my teacher and for showing me what Mass Communication is all about!

Julia Chong,
Foundations of Mass Communication

Pamela is the coolest lecturer I've ever met! She's so kind, understanding, knowledgeable, fashionable, talented and most important - she has a good sense of humor :) Also, she always finds time to meet students outside class time for advice if we ask her. She's adorable! I really miss her so much. Love you, Pam :)

Kariza Nurmasari,
Foundations of Mass Comm & Principles of Public Relations

Your lectures were fun and entertaining. It provided me with lots of new knowledge which I can put into good use in the future. You have been a great source of Inspiration.

Koh Zhao Kang Shawn,

With Pamela’s special gift for teaching and a heart that deeply cares, she added lots of love to everything she shares. She sparks the creativity in me as a student. She helped me to strive for my goals, priceless! Pam, you are a great teacher. Words could not express my gratitude and thank you for all your help. The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book.

Lisa Md Salleh,

Randy Ezekiel Seah,

Workplace Skills is probably a soft skill subject which is very dry. I appreciate your effort in making the class as lively as possible. Kudos and thanks!

Sherman Lim,
Workplace Communication Skills

I’ve always had the impression that PR was an admin job and that it is boring. But with Ms Pamela teaching, it was far from it. Lessons were fun, interesting and exciting. She never failed to keep us entertained with her bubbly personality and engaging stories. She pushed us beyond our boundaries to prepare us for life after school and helped mould us into future PR practitioners.

Siti Soleha Noorhisham,
Public Relations: Strategic Planning and Management

Pamela made tutorials fun and taught us so much from her vast experience and expertise. :D Go Pamela!

Spanky Han,

4 words for you Pamela - LOVE

L for loving - You're one of my lecturers who offers extended help to all her students and love him/her as a true friend.

O for optimistic -Your genuine laughter and the wide smile on you bring us the heartfelt emotions which did touch and keep the whole class alive. Especially in the mornings, when everyone is still dragging their feet for lessons.

V for Vivid - The memories we once shared together during the lessons course are as vivid as the dress code on you. Your colours are vibrant and lively which represent the joy and fun in your lectures.

E for enthusiastic -It express the enthusiasm in your coaching as a professional lecturer. Though many, many times we approached you for extended help and advise, you are always patient and never ever say “no” to us. A big thank you my dear Pamela, Love you. God Bless everyone :)

Stella Tan Li Zhi,
Principles of Public Relations

Not many teachers will stay in your memory always but Miss Pamela will. I still remembered when I first attended my part-time module for Foundation of Mass Communication class. Everyone was tired after a long day, but only one person stood there, full of energy-Miss Pam. Never came across such a talented teacher throughout my life.

Sugmad Eshwar,
Foundations of Mass Communication

Miss Pamela Wildheart never fails to bring sunshine into the classroom. What she says will always make you feel alive in action. Please stay colourful and continue to brighten up the lives of others as you have done for mine. I can safely bet I've never met a more interesting and engaging lecturer like you thus far. Take care and all the best in your future endeavours.

Tobias Chan Zi Wei,
Foundations of Mass Communication

Ms Pam’s amazing teaching techniques are always a delight to look out for.

Spontaneous, fun-loving and articulate, she really is!
It’s a joy being her student! Ms Pam, keep rocking- being that fantastic lecturer that u are. Cheers!

Vanie Jayram,
Foundations of Mass Communication

During the lectures, Pamela always asked us whether the lecture is too fast. To me (a foreign student), Pamela really cares about her students no matter which country, they are from.

Art of Teaching

Pamela Wildheart on a leisurely tour at the Singapore
Institute of Management Singapore.

Mark van Doren said: "The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery."
And: Who dares to teach must never cease to learn. ~John Cotton Dana

I am thankful to all my students for being able to give me the desire to learn from them. I will continue to teach and conduct my own courses aside from the academic lectures.

If there is one profession that has kept me “dynamic and going” as a person,
it is the art of teaching…

-Pamela Wildheart
