— Firas, 27

I like talking about life and its purpose, trying out new things, and relaxing. 

One thing that surprises other Malaysians about me is that I can speak Mandarin, thanks to my father. 

I'm good at overthinking and adapting to changes. 

One thing I'm proud of is that I made my own decision about my future even though no one else agreed. 

I decided to be a voter because I was moved by my father's words. He said "when you don't vote, you give up your country and your dignity." 

I'm most worried about government accountability and transparency, economic opportunities and employment, as well as poverty. 

These issues matter to me because poverty is the door that leads to huge issues such as health, crime, and education disparity. This creates losses for our nation. And corruption is one of the top white-collar crimes that paralyses our nation's growth. 

I wish I knew more about general knowledge on international relations between countries, how it works and how it affects countries. 

I want other young people to know that it's okay to not figure out your whole life yet, as long as you keep moving forward. The same goes to our political growth!
