Hendric Tay

Year CS'12:

Better known as the face behind travel blog Pohtecktoes, Hendric Tay was last featured in the 2016 issue of WKWSCI Alumni Magazine, where he shared his exciting experience as a full-time travel blogger.

In 2016, Hendric started online travel community, The Travel Intern, with his co-founder Cherie Sim. The website provides travellers with money saving travel tips and packing recommendations. To date, it has close to 200,000 likes on Facebook.

The Travel Intern also holds a travel internship programme twice a year. Each batch of interns would be given an opportunity to travel overseas and share their itineraries and travel tips through articles and videos.

In just three years, The Travel Intern has expanded from just being an online publication to a content marketing agency. Hendric shared that international expansion is in the pipeline.

With a recent partnership with Beyond Expedition that led the team to travel to Mongolia for their first community trip, Hendric teases more to come for readers.

On choosing one’s career path, Hendric said: “People always talk about chasing your passions but I think it’s more important to find what is it you are willing to sacrifice for.”
