Assalamualaikum and bonjour,

I Abdul Fattah Bin Samsuri, currently studying mechanical engineering at IUT Aix-Marseille, am running for the Director of Bureau Culture, session 2017/2018. As a foreign student, I believe that I have a role as an ambassador of Malaysia. I have always been passionate about promoting Malaysian culture among our students and the locals. For me, it is necessary to know and to understand our own heritage because as the old saying goes ” tak kenal maka tak cinta”.

As Director, this spirit should be shared and given out to achieve MASAFs objectives.

Firstly, my vision is to ensure the success of our annual events, Malaysian Night, Art Festival Malaysia and many more. I would collaborate with the local arts society to broaden the participation among the French locals during such events.

Secondly, promoting our culture especially amongst our Malaysian students is of the upmost importance. To do so, using social medias to share cultural information, eg, via MASAFs twitter or Facebook Page. In addition, students will have the opportunity to feel close to this bureau by giving them the chance to perform and show up their talent.

With my experiences as a member of Bureau Culture for the term 2016/2017 and my participation as a volunteer during MGXI, the direction of MASAF is one for the students, and the Malaysian heritage. You are a key element to the success of MASAF, and together, we can achieve greatness.

Même si je ne suis personne, je contribuerai toujours pour chaque personne.
