Our Youth, Malaysian Youth is stronger than ever, empowered than ever;
Thanks to the leadership of YB Khairy Jamaluddin and his team in the Ministry of Youth and Sports. The Youth Parliament idea and its implementation have achieved a milestone, a point for all Malaysian youth to celebrate our empowerment.
But as much as the power is given to us, youth, must not misuse the power. We must use the power for the benefit and the betterment for our youth community.
As the Youth Parliament moves forward and commence, it will need a team of collaborative and to represent the voice of the youth community. A representative who can bring the concerns of the youth up to the next level. A representative who can mobilize everyone connected to the Youth Parliament and strengthen the organization and to utilize the platform as a means for educating, developing and inspiring youth.
I am confident that I have the understanding of the youth community, the ideas and the deep passion to develop the youth community that qualifies me as one of the representative.
In my articles and inforgraphics that follows up through the campaigning period, I will explain the three pillars and five concerns of my candidacy for the Member of Youth Parliament.
Three Key Pillars
- Malaysian Unity
- Youth Empowerment
- Youth Development
Five Key Concerns
- High Cost of Living
- Housing & Urban Living
- Transport & Infrastructure
- Environment Sustainability
The Three Key Pillars are the practical action steps that I will propose and take collaboratively with fellow representatives together with a team of passionate Malaysian youth.
Meanwhile, the Five Key Concerns are voices and issues concerning the youth that I will highlight to the Government through the advocacy campaigns.
The Youth Parliament has never been about any particular individual, it should be a collaboration of the representatives and also every single youth in the country working together. And it is WE, TOGETHER.
