Ain Husniza chosen for Dewan Muda leadership programme

PETALING JAYA: Ain Husniza Saiful Nizam was among the young Malaysians chosen to participate in the Dewan Muda Malaysia (DMM) leadership development programme.

Others chosen for the two-year programme include student representatives, youth MPs and activists.

Ain Husniza said she was excited about the opportunity and thanked the DMM.

“Yes, thank you Dewan Muda! So excited to see and converse with all the young like-minded individuals I’m about to meet on the program!” she said in a post on her Twitter account on Wednesday (June 30).

This comes after DMM’s announcement of the candidates in a series of tweets in the past few days.

The 17-year-old made headlines earlier this year for calling out her teacher's rape jokes in class.

DMM is an educational and capacity-building training programme that works to educate youth representatives nationwide on the parliamentary system and policy analysis, as well as expose them to multiple issues in order to develop effective arguments through debates.

The leadership development programme was initiated by Undi18 in partnership with Unicef and Generation Unlimited aimed at bringing 222 representatives to work together in their selected ‘ministries’.

DMM said there have been 2,196 applicants, including 29 persons with disabilities (PWD).

“We're proud to see so many young Malaysians from diverse backgrounds stepping up to the plate!” said DMM in a tweet amidst the announcement of the chosen candidates.

It is learnt that DMM will release a full list of the chosen candidates in the coming days.
