We deserve to pave the way for our own future, and that includes what becomes of our country.
— Al, 25

I like reading, writing, and learning new languages.

One thing that surprises other Malaysians about me is my spoken and written English. I'm good at writing and speaking.

One thing I'm proud of is that I wake up every day to teach my students and I don't even dread it.

I decided to be a voter because of Brexit and Trump. That's what happens when young people don't vote. We need to take charge of how the country is run before we lose more than we already have.

I'm most worried about government accountability and transparency, lack of education, political instability as well as lack of political freedom.

These issues matter to me because this country involves politics into everything, and you can't do much if you're not in favour of certain political parties.

I wish I knew more about everything to do with finances and taxes.

I want other young people to know that we are Malaysians with a voice and thoughts, and we deserve to pave the way for our own future, and that includes what becomes of our country.
