Alhamdullilah! Selected for the 2nd cohort of the Acumen Fellows! From the time I applied in August to the Selection Conference in December, the application process has been a journey by itself. Excited to be part of a powerful and impactful cohort -- changemakers from various backgrounds.
From the time I've heard Acumen Academy (part of the global investment fund Acumen) set up shop in Malaysia, I knew I wanted to be part of Acumen Academy Malaysia. I'm attracted to the idea of tackling poverty. Poverty is not only in the dollar and sense. Many people face poverty in opportunities -- especially in getting the tools, exposure and experience to level in life. I've been on a mission to do this. Now, I'm happy a group of superpowers to learn from and make ripples of changes for our community.
