Each of us have our own role model, it can be anyone such as your father, mother, regular people, or even a prominence. Role model is someone that we look up to, and we have a desire to be success as they are.
WOMEN: girls is a cause-drive, not-for-profit organisation (NPO) that was founded to help women realise their potential as role models and to develop children to become agents of change.
They had organised such an awesome projects like Ikal Mayang and the prestigious TEDxKLwomen conferences in 2012, 2013 and 2015. They keep on going and won't stop because yesterday they invade SMK Seri Mulia students for #AkuNakUbah outreach programme.

There are nearly 20 role models from various backgrounds are invading the school to switch the way of thinking of 600 students through this program.
Each model is assigned to a group of 20 to 25 students for a 45-minute session conducted outside of the classroom, where they engage the students in real conversation or activity throughout the session.

Sasha Saidin, a part time celebrity and full time mum giving the girls advices that the student can relate to (ehem I heared they talk about love).
There are also a session where the youth are learning salsa dancing, which I was found really enjoyable because you learn something new there. I bet the students are having fun and just dancing around. Kudos to Dr. Mimi Morticia and her friend!

Other than that, Ili Sulaiman and Basira Yuesuff, Founders of Agak-agak Initiative session is great too. They create an activity that relate to their field, which is a culinary and students need to came out with a restaurant idea after preparing for it.

I have respect for the role models, and I grab the opportunity to ask Marina Mahathir some random question on how to improve grammar in her way, and she did give some great advices.
