    Awangku Muhammad Asfer Nazif Iman shared that they feel incredibly fortunate and immensely grateful towards the government, Ministry of Education (MoE) specifically the Centre for the Development of Gifted and Talented Education (EDGE), for granting them an opportunity to expand their horizon and enhance their knowledge through the ISYF 2023.

    “This has affirmed His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam and the government’s dedication towards Brunei Vision 2035 in propelling Brunei onto the global stage and building a more forward-minded generation that is going to bring this nation success in years to come,” added the student.
