Stories from the front lines

08 Fatin Farhana cropped

“A few friends whom I used to go to school with, didn't ended up finishing school. I want to help students believe that every dream is possible.”

2015 Fellow, Fatin Farhana grew up in the small town of Lawas, Sarawak, and is currently teaching in a high-need school in Miri, Sarawak. “One of my science classes managed to outrank the Kelas Rancangan Khas classes and became the top-ranking Form 1 science class in school during the year-end exam. The class pass rate increased from 51.35% to 72.97%; from zero As to three As, from two Bs to eight Bs - there were two girls who failed in the last exam who got Bs. I’m really inspired by my students. They gave their best and worked really hard. They showed me that the sky is the limit, that everything is possible.”

09 Samuel Lee

“I want to be part of the solution for a better Malaysia, and I know I can do so through teaching, and hopefully impact lives along the way.”

2015 Fellow, Samuel Lee teaches in a high-need school in Miri, Sarawak. Last year, Samuel and Fellows from four other schools in Miri participated in SAINS on Wheels, a community service project to teach Arduino to secondary schools. “I collaborated with Curtin University to bring the SAINS on Wheels tech mentor programme to my school. I mentored the school team who made it to the semi-finals, where they finished in the top 30 teams in Malaysia.”
