I’ve learned 2 things. I realised, and educated myself on the different kinds of prejudice, aside from the common race and gender. I also learned that not all discrimination, towards me especially, is intentional. I am quite shy and I keep to myself a lot. [However] sharing experiences with all my friends over at the camp and being pushed to look beyond the fact that we are different but instead look forward to that difference, I [now] have a different outlook on my school [and] social life in Malaysia.

I’m so happy I was among the chosen to come and represent INTI …This kind of fellowship and learning [that] we experienced should spread like a virus. I’m so grateful for all the friends too.We are all so different and if you don’t give it a chance you’ll never know how much someone can offer in your life.
