When I first arrived at Imperial College, I felt displaced and was in constant doubt over what this new world had to offer. Being part of the Lion Dance team and also more importantly, Malaysian Night erased these doubts and gave me something new to look forward to. I found a family away from home and I believe we all did. The bond that tied us and the things we shared together just got better every day. I enjoyed every bit of the company and not to mention, being part of the team that made MNight 2011 one of the best ever staged in the history of ICUMS.
Having experienced some of the best moments of my life, I feel moved to give back to the society and to the future members of this family. The need for a formidable committee to ensure the continuation of a tradition of excellence is indeed of paramount importance and I believe I can make myself worthy in this respect hence my decision to contest for the secretary post. My view of being a secretary is not to handle mere paperwork but to also keep the unit together and functional in every way possible.
My past experiences of being the Assistant Head Prefect of my high school and then Secretary of the Student Council at Kolej Yayasan UEM have undoubtedly shaped my character as a student leader and to address the challenges of assuming such positions. Not only have I acquired the essential work skills employed in my capacity as a secretary but also managing projects and events that added dimensions to my communication and interactive ability. I would personally ensure the demands of the society is met through consistent diplomatic efforts with the Imperial College Union and that members will have a great year to look forward to as we seek to expand our range of annual activities.
I believe everyone deserves a chance to show what they are capable of and I seek to convince you that I will give it my absolute best with every opportunity presented.
