Penang Youth to Business Forum (PY2B)

On the 6th of December 2014, the 2nd Penang Youth to Business Forum took place. It was definitely a worthy experience with many new knowledge and insights being served to the plenary. With Teach For Malaysia, Intel, Vitrox, Dell and MaGIC joining us for a workshop, I'm sure that the newly gained experiences and ideas have given us all a thought about the future generation and the development in Asia Pacific through collaboration. Let us together work towards a better future!

#Sharing is Caring


AIESEC has taught me to be confident in approaching challenges and have faith in own capability. There is no moment that we are most ready. Be comfortable in the sea of uncertainty and it is at those times when we can grow the most. Besides, AIESEC has provided me an international platform to meet bright young talents across the world and developed me to be a global citizen. Through AIESEC, I have seen how impossible dream came true in the lives of many young entrepreneurs and leaders. It motivated me to do the same.

I joined AIESEC because I wanted to learn and experience 3 things in my university life, Leadership, English language and networking in a global stage. AIESEC is arguably the best platform for me to practice the above 3. After I've joined AIESEC, I realized that it can provide more opportunities as it opens the door to make friends with people across Malaysia and the world.

The most unforgettable moment in AIESEC is Square Dance! It is such an enjoyable moment to dance with your best mates in AIESEC and in front everyone. It was one of those beautiful moments to be remembered always.

My AIESEC journey only officially lasted for 2 years. I did not run for senior position as I had to leave to the US to study. Nonetheless, it was the solid 2 years of AIESEC life which had broaden my horizon and taught me invaluable lessons which I still practice until today. It is the beauty of AIESEC. It is the DNA and culture that mind the most - not the title nor ranking. During my years in the US.., I also mingled with my American AIESEC friends in Washington D.C. and made a formal presentation on Malaysia. I had a colorful university life and AIESEC played a pivotal role in it.

I had a Team Leader Program experience in oGTP. I worked with a team of 13 from my university. We were working on Global Talent Programme because we believe by doing this we will create more valuable exchange experience for the students. My role was to be part of the pioneer team and lead my members to build the foundation for Global Talent Programme. This program challenges me because it was the first time that this programme is being carried out in our LC and my team and I had face a lot of uncertainties. This is my best AIESEC experience because I have challenges myself to try to do more than what I thought I can do and it taught me that "try to challenge yourself because it may surprise you". Now I'm continuing my AIESEC journey by having an exchange in Taiwan.

Q: What are your future plans in AIESEC?

A: I would like to contribute back to AIESEC as an alumni. Like chairing some sessions, sharing my experience or even give full support back to AIESEC. Besides, would really love to spread the essence of AIESEC to people around me :)

Q: What changes in this generation that you see that can bring AIESEC in USM (AUSM) to greater heights?

A: I would say purposeful members. I believe that if every member in AUSM understand the essence of AIESEC, it will lead to a more effective operation and also carry the AIESEC values within them.
