Following the Outstanding Trainee Award Ceremony during the Youth Development Centre (PPB) Convocation Ceremony, the Bulletin spoke to two awardees.

Muhammad Wazien bin Shahrin from the Skills Proficiency Certificate in IT for Office Application/Level 1 Certificate in IT Users course said there is no secret to the success he has achieved. He attributed hard work and desire to support his parents and his future as his main drivers.

Alhamdulillah, I achieved success in my career path, and now have the ability to support my parents too,” he said. “I gained a lot of experience from my friends and siblings which helped me to persevere on the path that I was on.”

Muhammad Wazien started working as a designer for a real estate company and is grateful to have been selected to work there.

He said the challenges he and his coursemates faced showed him that he must always be prepared. “My advice to those still undergoing their courses is: know what your strengths and weaknesses are so you can focus on what needs to improve.”

Meanwhile, Siti Nur Zaimah binti Zaini from the Skills Proficiency Certificate in Plumbing course who received the Outstanding Trainee Award for the January 2019 session said the centre has taught her what bonds meant through mass prayers and cooperation between coursemates.

“One of my most memorable experiences here was cleaning of the centre,” adding that she is “proud to be part of PPB”.

Siti Nur Zaimah is looking forward to starting her own door-to-door plumbing business in the future. “I hope those undergoing their courses at PPB will be successful too,” she said.
