Some of our most promising young leaders have been selected to be a part of former US president Barack Obama’s leadership program, and we can’t be more proud!

These young Malaysians come from various fields in media, social activism, aviation and property development. Despite being from different areas of expertise, they are all driven towards a similar goal: to create positive social impact.

The year-long programme, dubbed ‘Obama Foundation Leaders: Asia Pacific’ will kick off in December when Obama visits Kuala Lumpur to meet the selected Malaysians along with other young leaders around Asia.
