It all boils down to education first. With improved education, I hope more people are able to discuss and think critically about issues. Being able to think for yourself is a great power.

I like films, pole dancing, and cooking. 

One thing that surprises other Malaysians about me is that I'm actually Malaysian. 

I'm good at procrastinating (which is why I'm answering this right now). 

One thing I'm proud of is that I still haven't given up. 

I decided to be a voter the moment I knew I was legally able to vote. The right to vote is the right to have a voice. Imagine having that taken away from you. 

I'm most worried about discrimination and income inequality, lack of education, as well as religious and racial conflicts. 

These issues matter to me because it all boils down to education first. With improved education, I hope more people are able to discuss and think critically about issues. Being able to think for yourself is a great power. 

I wish I knew more about everything! More about culture, more about society. 

I want other young people to know that just because someone is older, does not mean they are more wise than you.
