promotes environmental sustainability through education, conservation and
advocacy. Since its establishment we have organised numerous activities

government agencies, private sector, media, non-governmental organisations,
schools and the community.
I am also the Green Xchange Director under the Society for Community Outreach
and Training. The Green Xchange programme has received the ‘Outstanding
Project for Youth Association Award' from His Majesty the Sultan of Brunei
Darussalam in conjunction with the National Youth Day in 2016.
I have also co-managed the ASEAN Young Professionals Volunteer Corps
programme and led volunteer expeditions to Indonesia, The Philippines and
Vietnam between 2013 - 2014 on various areas including education,
entrepreneurship, environment and special needs training.
In addition, I was also a recipient of the Queen's Young Leaders Award (2016)
presented by Her Majesty the Queen, as well as the recipient of the Youth
Service Award (2013) and Excellence Service Medal (2016) presented by His
Majesty the Sultan of Brunei Darussalam.
In 2017, I was appointed as the youngest member of the Legislative Council of
Brunei Darussalam, continuing to advocate for better youth services and
sustainable development at a higher level.
