Ms Ang Shu Yi

Ang Shu Yi set out on a mission to uplift individuals facing similar circumstances as her in the B40 community. Despite holding a degree in Biomedical Sciences and initially pursuing Breast Cancer Research, she felt a different calling. Shifting her focus to education, she devoted two years to teaching English in a suburban industrial area of Johor, courtesy of the Teach For Malaysia Fellowship. Her commitment to driving change extended far beyond the confines of the classroom.

Today, Shu Yi flourishes as a Product Owner for an education platform at a Telco company. However, her impact reaches well beyond her professional endeavours. She leads Impian Kencana, a non-profit organisation she founded to nurture children from low-cost flats and offer them opportunities to break free from the cycle of poverty.

Her remarkable journey stands as a testament to the power of perseverance and an unyielding commitment to uplift others. It vividly illustrates how impactful change can be realised within a community.

Making an impact means steadfastly supporting those in need, regardless of their ability to repay. It’s about going above and beyond to empower them with opportunities that enable them to shine and break free from the cycle of poverty. The true measure of impact is when individuals become empowered to help others, creating a sustainable ripple effect.
