Muhammad Naufal Bin Adam, currently doing Bachelor Degree in Real Estate Management at University Tun Hussein Onn, Malaysia. He is a 20 years old (28th July 1996) youth with a plan of changing the community for the youth in the nation and the world to be better. With the interest of being part of the global organization, he became member of some big organization such as United Nation Association of Malaysia, World Wildlife Federation, Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, AIESEC and some other organization in Malaysia.
Mr. Muhammad says, “I believe that by joining this kind of organization, I can build my network with other youth leader all around the world and the nation that have the same interested with me.”
As for hobbies, he loves reading and playing football a lot and has participated in many football competitions for his state during my school years. Besides, he likes to attend conference, talks and other educational programmed especially when it is about economics, real estate and public policy. Mr. Muhammad loves scouting a lot and has received the ‘King Scout Awards (Eagle Scout)’ last year. He is also the founder of Malaysian Real Estate Student Association which connects thousands of students studying real estate with the real estate practitioners and other big firms across the nation.
Mr. Muhammad loves to contribute something to the community that he is living in. He adds, “It always be my goal to improve the soft skills, especially thinking skills of the youth in Malaysia and other country. I seek for a better civic engagement for the youth and also better empowerment for the youth in Malaysia.”
Besides, he also want to eliminate the stereotype thinking of many high school students in Malaysia especially from low income family and rural area on giving up study when they graduate their high school years.
“The secret message communicated to most young people today by the society around them is that they are not needed, that the society will run itself quite nicely until they — at some distant point in the future — will take over the reign. Yet the fact is that the society is not running itself nicely… because the rest of us need all the energy, brains, imagination and talent that young people can bring to bear down on our difficulties. For society to attempt to solve its desperate problems without the full participation of even very young people is imbecile.” — Alvin Toffler
The quotes from Alvin Toffler really inspire me to become the youth leader now. I believe that the youths need to be appreciate more, be trusted by the current leader, and be lead with a good example.
In short, I as youth leader, need to have a good empathy skills to the youths living in developing world for the better future. I need to make them interested to involve in any projects that can improve the youth in the future by creating event that is suitable for the community that being impacted. As an example, for motivating youth leader in developing world, I like the idea of Model United Nation for youth as it gives the opportunities for the youth to express their point of view on something that have big impact to the world. I hope that the every youth leader all across the globe have the opportunities to join this Model United Nation.
