— Pikah, 26

I like cats, coffee, and my family.

One thing that surprises other Malaysians about me is my open-mindedness.

I'm good at making puns. Whether they're funny or not doesn't really matter.

One thing I'm proud of is graduating university while battling depression, even if it took me two years longer than my friends.

I decided to be a voter because I am sick and tired of how our country is a laughing stock and I am annoyed at how we get duped all the time.

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

These issues matter to me because my belief in God includes being fair to all living things, regardless of race, religion, and species.

I wish I knew more about personal finance, and how to plan for an educational path that doesn't lead me into getting stuck with a degree which looks pretty much useless given current job opportunities.

I want other young people to know that being a youth doesn't have to mean being ignorant. Also, despite others labelling us as manja and demanding, we are quite resourceful given the current economical instability.
