“What is your ambition?”
I believe this is the most common question that has been asked in primary school. Since I was a kid, I never changed my ambition till today. “ I want to be a teacher one day and I want to help others.” This is the only answer that I gave to every teacher that asked. I have always found passion in teaching since I was a kid. No matter who it is, it makes me happy when it comes to helping others. I never stop searching for opportunities to teach and help others.
I have enrolled in a tuition center as a part time tutor from 2016 until today and have taught more than 70 students. I feel satisfied when I see the difference between my students in terms of results and personality within a short period. However, I understand that there are still many students who don’t have the access to quality education in rural areas. There once was a child who was eager to learn but due to disability and financial issues from his family, he was forced to stop my class which makes me have a strong feeling towards Sustainable Development Goal 4 Quality Education where the mission is to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. I try my best to contribute back to 4.5 which by 2030, eliminate gender disparities in education and ensure equal access to all levels of education and vocational training for the vulnerable, including persons with disabilities, indigenous peoples and children in vulnerable situations by joining a lot of volunteering projects.
“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all. “This is what was told to me by my parents until today. It is still my motivation and support today. That is why I joined AIESEC in the first place to run a social project mainly aiming to help B40 students in rural areas. I joined a few organizations to strike my end outcome. From AIESEC to Ajar ajar Malaysia, I witnessed a bunch of students who are only 20 on average, eager to learn and create an impact together. AIESEC provided me an opportunity to have connections with externals to create impact together. Unlike before me, an imperfect solo ranger that dreams big but no implementations happened due to connection. Until today, I had made impacts together with a few organizations towards more than 80 students in the Perak area. Although it is hard, I always believe that to love who you are, you cannot hate the experiences that shaped you.
