SIFE Booth @ Convo Festival

You Stand Out

If every single graduate
Were as special as you are,
The world would be a better place
And everyone a star.

In the real world, though,
You sure stand out
For your extraordinary traits,
Those uncommon things about you
Everyone appreciates.

So congratulations, graduate!
We wish you all the best.
We know as you meet life’s challenges,
You’ll ace each and every test!

By Joanna Fuchs

Congratulations to our SIFE UTHM Alumni-Fuad & Yi Eei.

SIFE UTHM 1 Day Camp 2010

"It was fun & I enjoyed making a bunch of new friends.", "Now, I knew what is SIFE...", "I wanna join the community projects!"...These were just some of the feedbacks we got from the participants of SIFE UTHM 1 Day Camp held on 14th August 2010.

Organised by the senior SIFErs, we welcomed all SIFE newbies and whoever interested to know more about SIFE to participate in this 1 Day Camp. We conducted a brief session to introduce the 7 criteria of SIFE-market economics, entrepreneurship, business ethics, financial literacy, success skills, environmental sustainability and program sustainability. These are the keys to determine how effectively did each SIFE team measure and demonstrate that it created economic opportunity.

Up next, we carried out a series of game which conveyed different messages to help them better understand the criteria. By the end of the day, all of us mixed around well, bonds were strengthen, and the most important thing is that we had fun, a lot! Still, the program managers of several new projects managed to promote and induce some manpower for their respective projects. A big thanks to our all-time supportive fellow SIFErs!

Just in case you miss out the whole thing or probably just a bit of any part, we have photos below to recall your memory...

PSLP Exploration

Where have all the SIFErs gone? Gone to Pantai Sungai Lurus every one...Pantai Sungai Lurus Project (PSLP) were proposed by SIFErs Bobby and his fellow team mates during the SIFE UTHM Conference 2010. So, this morning, 12 SIFErs in 2 cars, there we arrived at Pantai Sungai Lurus after 30 minutes drive from Parit Raja.

"Welcome To The  Beach"

We are the only crowd here...

Rocks Rock!

Not many of us had been there before this. Wondering why are we approaching this village? Our mission is to explore the scarcity of resources and discover the needs of the villagers. Our vision is to create business opportunities and transform the community lifestyles. Not much words here as the photos will tell you the stories...

SIFE Malaysia National Exposition 2010

Hiya, SIFE UTHM just came back from the SIFE Malaysia National Exposition 2010 at PWTC,Kuala Lumpur.Wondering what's happening there that made us so excited? We are eager to share with you guys our marvellous experiences here. Read on...

Day 1
We reached there too early as the registration was supposed to start only at 3pm. After settled down the luggages, we took LRT to Times Square and had our lunch there.

On the way to Times Square, posed in front of Pudu Jail...

Approaching the food court

Self-service on ordering food and taking photos

Back to Seri Pacific Hotel, crowd of SIFErs from different universities gathered all over the lobby. We finally made our way to the registration counter to submit the mandatory documents and claimed our room keys with loads of goodies bags.

No worries on insufficient rooms...

And the rooms are so NICE!!!

Later on, we attended the soft opening and league pairing session. We were the first to get into Shell League along with SIFE UUM, SIFE UM and SIFE KLMU. That made us the first team to enter the presentation room on the next day.

Way back to hotel rooms...

and MORE!!!

Approaching night, there was a SIFE Malaysia Celebration Dinner in conjunction with the launching of SIFE Malaysia Alumni Network. We appreciated the sponsor, Khazanah Nasional for making this possible. The food were scrumptious and we met awesome people there as well. Great to see that everyone enjoyed the night!

After the dinner, fellow presenters rehearsed on their presentation hysterically though they were supposed to sleep early. Everyone also stayed up till late night just to ensure that we were well prepared for the BIG day.

Day 2
Early in the morning, we took a quick breakfast and rushed over to PWTC to wait for the call. Showered with good luck wishes from other SIFE teams, we were so ready to begin our part. Yeah, the presentation ended soon and we were bombarded with questions during the Q&A session. This part was tough as we had to backup each other with immediate responses.
