Achievement: Runner-Up in Social Innovation Pitching Competition APRU SDG4GC program 2022-2023

Reflection on the Program:
APRU SDG Education for Global Citizenship (APRU SDG4GC) is an intercultural, transdisciplinary, and interactive program emphasizing global citizenship among students from 60 universities. 

It was the perfect meeting for youth to build knowledge of global issues and global literacy and to take their initiatives and ideas forward.
Under the theme 'Shaping the Future of Health & Well-being,' I really appreciated that in this program, I gained access to interactive lectures, panel sessions, and workshops on SDGs, health & well-being, and social innovation. Social innovation and design thinking experts also facilitate a mentorship program to guide my team to develop social innovation prototypes that address the pressing challenges of societies globally.

Gaining knowledge and brilliant sharing from the experts enabled my fellow participants and me to prepare for the program's highlight, Social Innovation Pitching Competition. And I am very delighted to be awarded as Runner-Up in this competition with our social innovation – WISDOM COLLEGE. From this platform, I will be experiencing first-hand on-site training and workshop in Bangkok, Thailand, and the opportunity to attend the 79th UNESCAP event as a youth observer.

'Inspire, Be Inspired' message for future applicants:
APRU SDG4GC is an excellent program to invest your skills, ideas, and value in empowering you to confidently face the future. You are one step ahead in exploring beyond the norms, so let's push yourself above the average. Grab this opportunity and express your thoughts and ideas for a better future. Supporting the University Malaya's mission, 'Pushing the Boundaries of Knowledge and Nurturing Aspiring Leaders". Special thanks to APRU SDG4C Mentors and Program Designers, UM GEM Division & UM Sustainability and Development Centre (UMSDC) for the opportunity, guidance, and support!

Once again, congratulations Fatin
