Intern Diaries – Ellie

When I first visited Hong Leong Foundation, I was not sure of what to expect. However, after working with this inspiring team for a few weeks, I can say for sure that it was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had so far. I had the pleasure of participating in various meaningful projets. Initially, I partook in the establishment of a new SOLS scholarship in Penang’s university PSDC. It was a unique experience, […]

A Scholar’s Journey – Choong Wei Ling

Someone once told me: “Never let financial constraints restrict your dreams. Let the sky be your limit.” I remember I was in my final year of my pre-university education when I heard this advice.

I was afraid that […]

I wanted an International experience where I could learn and grow from other cultures and […]

I found one – Hong […]

Intern Diaries – Ong Ying Hui

  The outcome from my internship was more than what I expected. It was exciting to observe how a corporate company operates. The dress code in the workplace, the place setting and organizational culture was very much different from what I experienced in school. My main responsibility was to do administrative work and also research about NGOs in Malaysia. From the responsibilities that were given to me, I better understood the functions of Hong Leong […]

The four years […]

A Scholar’s Journey – Chua Yong Xia

Being a former Foundation scholar, I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude towards Hong Leong Foundation for granting me the scholarship to complete my undergraduate study in University Science Malaysia (USM). It is my honour to share my experience as a former HLF scholar. I graduated in Bachelor Degree of Accountancy in USM. Instead of choosing to start my career, I opt to start my postgraduate study and ACCA. The main reason is I feel […]
