Kuching Youth 2 Business
The Kuching Youth to Business Forum is an event that brings young leaders in Kuching together with top officials in leading corporates for a unique and interactive experience to discuss pressing topics in East Malaysia with the aim to generate new and actionable ideas. The Kuching Youth to Business aims to bridge the gap between corporates and students, and to provide an interactive platform for them to showcase themselves.
On the 11th of April 2015, 200 students from higher learning institutes from all over Kuching, Sarawak, all from different courses and walks of life, all gathered in UNIMAS to spend a day with top corporate entities from Shell, Kenanga Investment Berhad, NAIM, and Bursa Malaysia in an event called the Kuching Youth to Business Forum – hosted by AIESEC UNIMAS.
All the guests arrived as early as 8.30am on event day and were given a goodie bag before entry. The event started around 9.30am with, our emcee, Wei Han, going on the stage to give the crowd a short warm up before inviting our OCP to give the opening appreciation speech. The VIPs who attended the Forum were MK Tan from Kenanga Investment Berhad, Mr Jimmy Ng from NAIM, Mr Mak Met from Shell, and Mr Warren Mak from Bursa Malaysia.
After the appreciation speech, the Executive Director of NAIM, Mr Jimmy Ng was invited to
give the Keynote Speech. The title of his speech was “Retaining Our Competent Youth by Going beyond Rewards”. After the Keynote Speech was the Forum, where all 4 VIPs were invited on stage as panelists to take part in the Forum, which was moderated by a senior alumni of AIESEC, Mr Howard Tee. They discussed a number of questions and after that, the forum was open to the floor for the students to ask questions for the panellists to answer. Immediately after the Forum, Melanie Chan, one of our members, gave a short sharing session on our exchange opportunities.

From The Editor
Hey People!!! Thanks for reading until this part. We have covered the evolution and important milestone for AIESEC in UNIMAS in this newsletter. It is like sitting in a time machine and travel back in time. Although some of us are not there, but I am truly inspired by legacies that created by founding members of AIESEC in UNIMAS. It is like reading a history book, understanding our national history and feel proud to be a Malaysian.
How to become a butterfly: Stage 1: Egg
Eggs are laid on plants by the adult female butterfly. These plants will then become the food for the hatching caterpillars. Butterfly eggs are very small.
AIESEC in UNIMAS Stage 1: Ideas
How to become a butterfly: Stage 2: Caterpillar
The next stage is the larva. This is also called a caterpillar if the insect is a butterfly or a moth.
The job of the caterpillar is to eat and eat and eat. As the caterpillar grows it splits its skin and sheds it about 4 or 5 times. Food eaten at this time is stored and used later as an adult.
Caterpillars can grow 100 times their size during this stage.
AIESEC in UNIMAS Stage 2: Sparking change in UNIMAS
How to become a butterfly: Stage 3: Chrysalis
When the caterpillar is full grown and stops eating, it becomes a pupa. The pupa of butterflies is also called a chrysalis.
This stage can last from a few weeks, a month or even longer.
It may look like nothing is going on but big changes are happening inside. Special cells that were present in the larva are now growing rapidly. They will become the legs, wings, eyes and other parts of the adult butterfly.
Many of the original larva cells will provide energy for these growing adult cells.
AIESEC in UNIMAS Stage 3: Transformation
Stage 4: Butterflyyyyyyyyy
AIESEC in UNIMAS STAGE 4: Growing Rapidly
There is one more thing...
There is one FACT that most of the people will forget: A butterfly did not born butterfly. It started from a small and ugly egg. Even after their transformation to a caterpillar, it is still small and ugly. But, during caterpillar stage, the caterpillar started to prepare everything for it to enter another phase: which is transformation. During transformation phase, outsiders may not understand what is happening inside, only the caterpillar itself know and experience about it. Only after being ugly, small and geli, a caterpillar will finally grow into a butterfly, which is beautiful and amazing.
Yes. Most adult butterflies live only one or two weeks. (which means they prepare for so long but eventually survive only for two weeks). But bear in mind that this cycle is a repetition cycle and it keeps on repeating....
Our senior members are doing their part exceptionally well.
It is time for us, "younger" members to CONTINUE CREATING ANOTHER BIGGER LEGACY, rather than living comfortably under the legacy created by our senior members, which possibly results to stagnant growth.
So, are you ready to create another butterfly life cycle?
