School of Life Mentorship Session at IBTE

Oct 12, 2022

A real pleasure to be involved in this initiative by Shaun Hoon of Curious Mind. For this session both myself and Zubaidah of The Impian Project had the chance to speak with the wonderful students of IBTE on ‘redefining success’. I talked about building a more equitable society and Zubaidah shared the importance of community building, compassion and empathy. This was just one of many sessions students have joined as part of 2nd Petronas School of Life programme.

The full programme comprised 20 topics, divided into five key modules. These included change and adaptation, career, community and environment, entrepreneurship and communications. It was conducted at UBD, Universiti Teknologi Brunei, Institute of Brunei Technical Education, Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali and Politeknik Brunei from October to November. The fully sponsored initiative provided over 300 youth the opportunity to develop life skills beyond the classroom, with support of key players in the local community as well as from abroad.
