We merely learn to co-exist if we respect one another, but we can only be one if we learn to admire one another.
— Jason, 24

I like socialising, animals, and sports. 

One thing that surprises other Malaysians about me is how open-minded I am about other religions and cultures. 

I'm good at speaking, socialising, and balancing different objects on the tip of my finger.

One thing I'm proud of is being Malaysian— we speak many languages, understand different cultures and religions, and we get to try so many different kinds of food! 

I decided to be a voter because I believe each and every one of us has a role to play. And voting is a small role but an important one! 

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

These issues matter to me because we merely learn to co-exist if we respect one another, but we can only be one if we learn to admire one another. But this is hard to achieve with national challenges that arises from extremism, ignorance, and lack of accountability. Our safety, security, and well-being are at stake here.

I wish I knew more about personal finance management. 

I want other young people to know that no matter how much you deny it, your vote matters. It not only affects you, but everyone around you, and the next generation to come.
