As a teenager, I was left to navigate the uncharted waters of life by the untimely demise of my father. Hitchhiking a ride from the comforts of Malacca, my hometown to the turbulent and unfamiliar vastness of KL, supported only by my mother, who had never been to college and had scarce resources to lean on. For one who started a journey on such uncertain grounds, it was a moment of honour to be conferred an Honorary Doctorate in Entrepreneurship Education this morning by His Majesty the Yang di-Pertuan Besar Negeri Sembilan, Chancellor, National University of Malaysia, UKM at their 50th Convocation. Thank you for the honour, UKM. Thank you, Mum, I wouldn’t be here if not for your courageous presence. I am forever grateful.
