Aspire to Achieve Greatness

In the final days of high school over 15 years ago (gasp!) and with the dreaded SPM results looming (yes I know it sounds like forever ago), I harbored a small (& wishful) thought of maybe, just maybe and a little bit of you-never-know attitude of going to Pratt Institute in New York to study something in design (but i couldn’t draw to save my life). Yeappp, I had some mighty big dreams.

Needless to say, once reality hit (in the form of the parental (s) saying no way no how) so I chose to explore options. I picked a local college; with the provision it would be an ‘arty’ school and proceeded to bury myself in the world of Mass Communication focusing on Film&TV. Many years later, after a stint overseas and back again I finally figured out what I want to do for the rest of my life; and it has almost nothing to do with Film or TV… wish someone could have pointed it out once I finished local college..

These days not only do you still have uni / college fairs or roadshow to attend; there are career and networking fairs to help you kick-start your future in the corporate world. The one and only #graduanaspire is a highly anticipated career and networking fair; first conducted in Kuala Lumpur in 2011. When the whole idea of career networking began to take flight, GRADUAN ASPIRE extended its reach to East Malaysia (specifically Sarawak) last year. Its debut in Kuching saw more than 5,000 young ‘uns learning of the opportunities available to them, and taking into account some of the country’s leading corporations like Nestle, Shell, Alliance Bank and PETRONAS were able to secure some of Sarawak’s finest to join their organisations.

Not only is there absolutely total access to some of Malaysia’s biggest corporations and institutions, the GRADUAN ASPIRE BORNEO 2015 will be one of the most integrated career fairs of all time in Sarawak. There will be over 20 corporations from all industries; including LAFARGE, NAIM, INTEL, PRESS METAL, BRITISH AMERICAN TOBACCO and so many more. Seriously, such greatness is NOT TO BE MISSED!

The highly anticipated and also known as the dirtiest elections ever is coming up on 5th May and for the first time in my life, I will be voting! Having lived away from Malaysia for most of my 20’s this is pretty exciting for me and obviously being connected via social media you read, see and hear all about the good, the bad and the ugly!

The onslaught of information online has been coming in volumes, and most probably will continue until after May 5th! I’ve talked about it, read articles, looked at cartoons, viewed videos and even laughed at random pictures taken by the die-hards and still I think there is more i can do! So,this is my tiny contribution to encourage you to take that step and get out there and be the cause for change!


We all need to do our bit as Malaysians and vote at the polls this weekend!
