Our Gurus had a small but intimate session with Malaysia's favourite social activist, Syed Azmi.
He spent two hours talking about his social causes, the opportunities and challenges that comes with it.
Syed Azmi was generous to share advice and tips on making an actual impact with the people that really matter.
We learned the need to talk less and do more; dialogue with people who you won't necessarily agree with; and be patient in advocating important issues.
We took away many lessons from Syed Azmi's experience. Among others, they are know your neighbours before wanting to change the world, lead by example and remember the cause is not about you but about others.
All in all, an inspiring night for us at Nation Building School to learn from your favourite activist's favourite activist.
Thank you for the opportunity, Syed Azmi! Our torch for youth in Malaysia only grows brighter!
We are youth platform aiming to shape the future, one mind at a time.
