REPORTING ON EVENTS
PUTRAJAYA, 11th November 2018 – The 7th Annual “Dance for Kindness (DFK)” took place at IOI City Mall situated in Putrajaya. The “Dance for Kindness” initiative is a movement created by Life Vest Inside, which unites people from all around the world, often segmented to as far as cities, to perform the same song, same dance, on the same day. Last year’s DFK took place in over 120 cities spread across 50 countries. This is the second time Putrajaya’s DFK took place at IOI City Mall, as well as the second time Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN) organized the event. This time, it was sponsored by MIXIUQI as well as IOI City Mall.
Convocation is the end goal of every university student. It is the time for tears and joy and for throwing your hat in the air like you just don’t care but you really shouldn’t, because you might get them dirty and I think that you need to return them later. But at the same time, it also marks the start of a new life for the graduates. It’s when we really need to start adulting and doing adult things like taxes and paying mortgages. All part of the charms of adulthood! Here are a few short interviews conducted with a few of our outstanding graduates.

For the uninitiated, here’s the tea:

SUBANG, 3rd August 2018 – As the participants sat in the conference room at the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA), they were regaled with tales of bravery and valour. Fighting pirates trafficking drugs on the high seas, saving lives, extinguishing rapacious forest fires and apprehending small armed robbers hijacking vessels closer to home are all in a day’s work for the brave men who patrol our waterways, keeping us safe in our homes.
KAJANG 29th July 2018 – Participants of Future Leader’s Conference faced numerous challenges as they traversed the treacherous path laid ahead of them. Elevator pitches and business cases were the least of their concerns as they negotiated with terrorists, all while juggling with the welfare of the country and looming national debt.

KAJANG, 4TH JUNE 2018 – On May 28, 2018, KitaTerangi was held in the UNITEN’s students’ lounge at the UNITEN Student Centre (USC). KitaTerangi is an initiative by #KITAUNITEN to engage with the most vulnerable community in our society, refugees. UNITEN reached out to students from IDEAS Academy to help provide a holistic education. IDEAS Academy is a secondary learning center for underprivileged children, including those who are refugees, stateless and undocumented. It is located in Kuala Lumpur.
Preparations for KitaTerangi were ongoing ever since UNITEN’s recent semester break (May) and took place on May 28. 50 students from the academy attended the event. There was street sketching activity for the students, conducted by a freelance artist, Mr. Aliff Danial. The session started at 3 p.m. and lasted for two hours. They were taught about shades and even sketched the faces of their friends.
