Do you have a story to tell?

Thanks to my loyal blog reader for highlighting this to me. I saw this on paper too! Thanks to The Star for publicizing this.
Would definitely hope more of you to write in and share. As of now, we got 11 submissions. Still 89 more to go.. :(

YOUNG Malaysians who have pursued different pathways after SPM are invited to write accounts of their struggles and successes.

A group of people fired by their enthusiasm for community service — namely Charis Loke, Gabrielle Chong Yong Wei, Goh Jing Pei, Kimberley Ho Mei Kay, Tara Thean and Yeoh Chen Chow — plan to compile and publish these stories in a book .

They hope to eventually distribute it to as as many secondary schools as possible.

The stories do not need to be about scholars with stellar results and thick resumes.

They could be of students who go to a local university after finishing Form Six, or youths who have to work in the pasar malam to foot their college fees.

The group believes that every educational background offers its own boons and banes and that there are merits in telling any story.

Partcipants must be Malaysians and below the age of 30 as of 2009.
