An Appeal to Students (from Su Ann)

Words of wisdom from a Malaysian student, Su-Ann, studying in New York. Her take on the Malaysian school system (in particular clubs and societies) can be summarised in her plea below:

"Don't be another me, who did a lot of boring things and was so disenchanted with school that i didnt even want to try to do much else. dont be another first-class student, who thinks that they’re smarter than everyone else because they are in 5 Anggerik or 5 Sains 1. Dont be another last-class student, who gives up because of how far goals are inadvertently placed from them. just be someone who knows what’s good, and then go out there and get it."
