The Axiata Young Talent Programme (AYTP) has acknowledged my talent and nurtured me to become a competent young leader. The incredible 5-year journey in the programme has taught me to not only develop impactful ideas, but also to be able to respect the opinion of others. I have been given the opportunities to lead small projects in school as well as community programmes. These experiences have improved my communication skills and my ability to convince others to work together.
One of the best things about ATYP is that the students are taught to make effective decisions under tremendous pressure. I have learnt that planning is essential, but things do not always turn out as expected. When things go sideways, AYTP has taught me to use them to my advantage and not to consider them a failure.
Above all, I can confidently say that I would not be who I am today if it is not for AYTP. It has made much difference and positive change into my life. It has helped me seeing things differently, enabling me to gain an advantage in and outside class. I have seen my friends change gradually from being introverted, to outgoing and confident future leaders. I would highly recommend this program to all Malaysian youths.
