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 Foundation, and was given the opportunity to participate in various programs such as NGO accelerator, Office Recycling Program and etc. From these programs, I realized that there are many other organizations who are taking initiatives to do the right things in order to improve the livelihood of Malaysia and hence, shaping a better nation.
Further, I also assisted Mr. Shafiq in managing the Scholars’ club. Hong Leong Foundation organized scholarship enrichment camps for scholars. It was my pleasure to contribute in providing an enjoyable and an enriching camp for my fellow scholars who I am more than happy to call friends!
Thank you, Hong Leong Foundation, for giving me this opportunity and allowing me to get one step closer to the real working life. And I am glad to have made a bunch of friendly colleagues who helped me along the way and making my internship a good one.
I strongly encourage everyone to to grab this opportunity to join this awesome team.
