The Member of Parliament (MP) for Bukit Mertajam, Steven Sim Chee Keong who is well-known for his philanthropic activities is at it again, this time giving an update regarding Mei, a Malaysian who recently received her citizenship after being stateless for 20 years. Taking to his official Facebook page, Steven shared Mei’s life story and her struggles to live as a stateless person in our country despite being born, raised and studying in our country.

Steven further shared how Mei is not from a well-off family and how she fully understands the value of education. After finishing secondary school, Mei worked for a year in order to save up some money to continue her education. Last year, thanks to her hard work and dedication, she was able to enrol in an IT Diploma course in a local institution.

Steven said that Mei always wanted to become an IT developer and shared her dreams and struggles with the Bukit Mertajam MP in various meetings throughout the years. In fact, now that she has continued her studies, Mei is still working part time in order to pay her tuition fees and daily expenses.

She goes to study and work through public transportation and through her part-time job, her monthly income is not fixed and all of which are used to pay for her room rent, study expenses and for food. Thankfully, Mei finally received her citizenship through the assistance of the Penang State Government which greatly helped her to ease her struggles.

Now that she is no longer stateless, Mei immediately went to get a motorcycle license to make it easier for her to commute to work and class. In fact, she’s even planning to increase her income by becoming a part-time as a Grab Food delivery rider.

When meeting with Steven again on Friday (13 May 2022), Mei asked the Bukit Mertajam’s advice regarding her studies and shared how she is currently saving up some money to buy a second-hand motorcycle.

Touched by her struggles and determination, Steven decided to help Mei by getting her a new motorcycle by using his own money. They then decided to get a new Honda Wave with on the road price of around RM5,100.

Previously, Steven also helped Mei by buying her a laptop to help with her studies prior to receiving her citizenship. The Bukit Mertajam MP then shared his condition for Mei to receive the assistance from him in the Facebook post:

“I only have one condition for Mei, which is to study hard. If she has to decide between studying or working, pick studying. Study until getting her degree and not just stop at diploma.”

“Then, when Mei has the capabilities, help others that need assistance too, regardless of race and religion.”
