It’s been 9 sweet months ever since EYE Project started, and a year since Socialgrooves began – both have come a long way, and grown to something the team and I are proud of. Personally, so much has happened, both in my career and in relationships. Roller coaster it has been, but I would say – more fantastic ups then depressingly down. For all of that, I am thankful to God for being so awesome to me and the people around me including my family and friends.
One of the highlights I have this year, is to be featured on Bernama TV‘s The Breakfast Club (Astro 502)- my first longest LIVE appearance on TV where I discussed about social media at large, about how my silly blog got popular, how I got involved in social media activism and even managed to slot in about how the opportunity for youths have come to Malaysia (in the form of EYE Project). This would not have happened if I did not stumble into @Syafique of the Motivation.my fame, which would not have happened if myHarapan did not invite me (it was a pitch to our Prime Minister @NajibRazak himself, too), and that would not have happened if @RoslanBZ did not have faith in me.
Below is the recording on Bernama TV’s YouTube channel – do excuse my excessive repeating and nervousness, was already doing my best! 🙂
There’s a lot more to share regarding the progress that has happened since the first twtup of the year (#1111TwtUp) at @JayaOne, to experiencing @TeachForMsia’s first crowning of 2011 Fellows, to some dramatic make ups and break ups, to meeting legends such as Professor Muhammad Yunus of Grameen Bank fame, seeing both @UKEC & @YCMS to the height of its progress and of course being best man to Wan Mohd Firdaus, le partner in crime, and many, many more wonderful and exciting moments!
But that will have to wait because I’ll be heading to @JayaOne to countdown to the mysterious year of 2012 – however, I feel that this coming year will be a legendary year, especially for the youths of Malaysia, because for once – their passion and efforts will be recognized and respected by the people of power, and thus, Malaysia’s progress into a high-income nation by 2020 will soon come to be true – thanks to the integrated efforts of both the young and the old!
Finally, the crystal clear vision I had since I was 20 years old was coming to materialize… and it is all thanks to the the support of some of the most fantastic people I’ve met over the years. Let’s greet 2012 with lots of bangs and blasts together!
