hope floats

In this issue, we reached out to the graduating class of 2020, who tell us of their hopes and dreams for the future post Covid-19.

virtual reality

With great adversity comes great opportunity. Well, that’s how we viewed this golden chance to grab hold of the hard-to-pin-down Tengku Irfan for a photo shoot and interview. Prior to the travel ban, you would usually see him flying off somewhere to perform with orchestras but now, he has to stay grounded for the time being. We were fortunate to commission New York-based photographer PJ Lam to do this shoot.

educate and you empower

If asked if she’d known that educational equity would become one of her biggest motivators for running MCII, Malaysia’s first collective impact organisation, Dipti Kumar would tell you what she’s told me: “Not at all,” the young CEO candidly shares. “What initially drove me and in fact still does was realising that the world was unfair, because while I grew up surrounded by people who knew the value of education and had access to it, somewhere out there is a child that doesn’t or can’t have what I had. So what can I do to change that?” THE VALUE OF KNOWLEDGE Growing up, Kumar recalls how her mother had made their education her number one priority, taking care to allow her children to explore their interests no matter the circumstance. “A huge…
