Meet our Campus Leaders

Campus Leaders play an extremely important role in helping us find our future Fellows – many even join the Fellowship themselves after graduating! Whether you’re studying locally or abroad, being a Teach For Malaysia Campus Leader is a great way to give back, connect with like-minded young people, and be part of something bigger.  About the role FAQs

The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus

"My all time favourite Teach For Malaysia experience is definitely playing the 'Cikgu Life' board game with the other students. Seeing the realisation dawn on their faces that education inequity is a real struggle and obstacle faced by teachers and students in schools all across Malaysia reaffirmed my stance on the importance of this cause."

The University of Manchester

"I don't think being born in a city makes me more deserving of opportunities. Education inequity is my problem and yours. Change starts with one person but it is never limited to one person. That is why I applied to be a campus leader, to do just that - be the person to help bring change."

University of Melbourne

"The best part of being a Campus Leader is working alongside passionate and like-minded individuals, who are invested in working towards an imperative mission. The perks include a steep learning curve in personal and professional development, an abundance of support and at the end of the day, a deeper insight towards the mission. Bonus point- you get a really cool and exclusive t-shirt!"

University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

"As a Teach For Malaysia Campus Leader, I help scout for potential Fellows on my campus. The joy in being a Campus Leader is you see your struggle to help promote education equity never come to naught. Being a Campus Leader allows me to reach out to various connections and organise or be part of events that would in turn inspire some to support our cause."

"At Teach For Malaysia, people have their own passion and goals. They set milestones for themselves, going out of their comfort zones to discover new things. It's the mindset of being able to work towards one's goal so zealously that made me want to put more effort into what I want to do in future. It’s really been an inspiration." - Cindy Seah, University of Minnesota Twin Cities.
