Way before he won Star Search in 2019, Zhang Zetong and his two sisters spent 10 years commuting from JB to Singapore daily for school.

The 28-year-old Malaysian, who studied in Marsiling Primary School, Bukit Panjang Govt High and Anglo-Chinese Junior College, eventually graduated with a business degree from NUS before going on to work as a customer relationship manager at online marketplace Carousell for three years.
