Yet another milestone achieved by talented Indian students!
Indian students continue to empower and impress many by evolving tremendously well in the spheres of academics, sports, science and the entertainment industry.
Globally, Indians have over the centuries contributed well to world development and many prominent figures known to many come from the Indian continent.
Likewise, in Malaysia, there is no exception to this and in recent decades, we have been witnessing the rise of many Indians coming forth with inventions and academic excellence that has elevated the standing of the Indian society in the country. Some of the well respected industrialist in Malaysia belong to the Indian community.
Carrying on their legacy of excellence, two Malaysian Indian students, OCDT Suashirni Sathasivam and OCDT Kesavaraj Partiban from Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia have been selected to participate in the 2021 John McCain Study at the U.S. Institutes (SUSI) for Global Leaders on the Rule of Law and Public Service. The competition will be joined by other students from Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Cameroon, Colombia, and Kuwait at the University of Nevada, Reno.
Hosted by the University of Nevada, this program is mainly for student leaders from military academies which will see these students covering how the system of law and public service promote functional democracies, as well as the role of non-governmental institutions such as civic organisations, the media, and the corporate sector in shaping US public policy.
Besides that, the goal of this program is for student leaders to implement what they’ve learned to real-world problems in their home countries. With a special focus on public service and leadership in this programme, students will draw on both experiences and academic work to develop a final project which is meant to enhance some element of their community/system/government upon their return to their home country.
The program will honour the late Senator John McCain of Arizona’s leadership and the values and beliefs he championed during his long career in public service.
Congratulations to the both young hopefuls and we wish you the very best of luck!
