— Akmar, 32

I like books, music, and social media. 

One thing that surprises other Malaysians about me is that I'm more open-minded and very flexible compared to some Malays they know. 

I'm good at charming people from all walks of life. 

One thing I'm proud of is that I am very patient and adaptable, I am able to work with any type of manager. 

I decided to be a voter because my late father drilled it into my head how important it was to vote for my rights. 

I'm most worried about government accountability and transparency, religious and racial conflicts, and my safety, security, and well-being. 

These issues matter to me because I have to deal with them daily. 

I wish I knew more about how the government actually works for the country. 

I want other young people to know that Malaysia is really our home.
