Hello everyone! I am Chin Yi Hien, FP-15 student in France. I am a 2 nd year civil engineering student in IUT de Reims. I am currently running for MASAF’s 2017/18 election as Director of Entrepreneurial and Leadership (E&L) Bureau.

I joined MASAF as committee member in E&L Bureau in 2016 and I think that I can now lead this bureau in order to increase our contribution to Malaysian students in France by making some changes. These are the objectives that our bureau will achieve if I am elected as the bureau director:

1. Transform ALC to Annual Entrepreneurship and Leadership Camp

I participated ALC 2016 as organiser. We faced a lot of difficulties and challenges that

allowed me to gain experiences in organising a programme. Hence, I think I am able to improve this beneficial programme by not repeating the former mistakes. I wish to attract more students to this programme by adding in entrepreneurial elements such as preparation of business plan, financial knowledge and administrative processes.

2. Cooperate with Marché Malaisien FB page

We decided to start a new platform for students to exchange or sell their belongings or services. For example, students who are moving from their cities can sell their furnitures to those who are arriving, students can also propose meal services in their city. However, there is already a similar platform on Facebook which is “Marché Malaisien”. Therefore, I want to cooperate with the page admin and have the page always active.

3. Encourage students on the entrepreneurial path

Nowadays, there are more and more entrepreneurs who succeeded in their start-up business. I believe there are many students who are interested to be entrepreneur after graduate. In my opinion, it is now the moment we are going to learn these entrepreneurial skills and begin our path.

To accomplish these missions, I will need your vote. Of course, if you have better ideas and wish to learn more, feel free to contact me or join my team as a committee member of E&L Bureau.

Thank you.
