Want to build a path towards a top university entry?
The time to start is now! We’ll be holding a talk titled “What it Takes to Reach Your Dreams” to give you an idea of what students should be doing to secure their spot in institutions like Oxford, Cambridge, Ivy Leagues and other Top Universities.
This talk is suitable for ages 14 and above to understand how to start aiming high and achieving a place at the best universities in the world. All are welcomed to participate. We will also be conducting a question and answer session.
All our proceeds for this event will go to Colour Away Covid, an initiative founded by a team of secondary school and college students living in Malaysia and Hong Kong. They are currently running a campaign called Dear Malaysia, which aims to raise RM150,000 to provide support for underprivileged students in Malaysia. This includes sponsoring internet services for these students and supplement funds for educational and additional support for them and their families.
