I enrolled into SIM Global Education with determination to further my studies. It is also my dream to experience campus life at a tertiary level. Being a netball player for almost 10 years, the idea of attending lectures and ‘hiding’ in the library after classes instead of being engaged in competitive training and tournaments was exhilarating – it became my goal to embrace all that SIM had to offer.
It was that decision that resulted in ‘fishballs’ entering my life!
(Editor’s note: To those who may not be familiar with what’s fishball, it is a savory dish that comprises fish meat and flour blended together then served in tiny spherical shape)
Malaysian Community in SIM or MCSIM for short, often organises bonding events such as sports leagues and charity events. In every meal functions held, we would always be served fish ball.
I really loved what I do in MCSIM and I could say, ‘fishballs’ gave me a new experience in life.
My greatest moment was attending the Student Leaders Award and Appreciation Night (SLAAN) in 2016.
Though I was presented the HELM award, it was the privilege of seeing 19 out of 112 recipients from my team receiving awards that moved me deeply. It was truly gratifying for me to see growth in all our lives – I saw how our journey had made an impact and contributed in growing us into better people. That desire to contribute to others also led me to serve as peer mentor, which aptly expresses what I believe in life in its motto – care, share, grow!
