SEARCHING, DREAMING, ASPIRING:
THE HONDA DREAMS FUND SCHOLARS SETS THEIR NEXT TARGET
Honda Malaysia recently sparked the journey for 20 scholars who are now on their way to pursue their ambitions. Among the bright-eyed dreamers are a would-be veterinarian, lawyer, pilot, optometrist, designer and even a chef. No dream is too out-of-reach, as Honda proved with their fourth batch of scholars since the Honda Dreams Fund was incepted in 2007.
“I believe that the ingredients to success are dreams, bravery and ability,” says Jason Chia who is resolute on becoming a psychologist. “My goal in life is to serve others because you need only to contribute a little to transform lives, especially the vulnerable and helpless. By taking the first step towards getting a degree in psychology, I hope to do my part in creating a healthier society,” he continues optimistically.
The determination to succeed is undeniable, not just emanating from Jason but other scholars who are each equally passionate but lack the financial privilege or opportunities to pursue their dreams. Like Jason, Jasmine Natasha
Rajah has a big heart and aspires to work with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) or United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) where she is able to fight for children and women’s rights. “I was inspired after attending several workshops by UNICEF in high school. I am fortunate to have grown up to be an independent individual but
there are many out there who are unaware of their rights, let alone dare to dream. I would like to empower them to strive harder to achieve their goals,” says the astute Jasmine who desires to help impoverished youths around the world.
“I count my blessings to have had a happy childhood despite not growing up in a conventional family. My mum, though a single parent, did her best to provide my sister and me with a sense of luxury, although not extravagant,” she adds.
“We struggled with financial difficulties and when I was younger, I did get jealous of others who had no problem paying for things but I learnt to be independent, which is a value I instilled in my sister as well.”
Joining the other scholars is Narvinder Singh who has a compelling story to tell, having grown up in a farm. “Working with my dad at the farm was one of the highlights during my teenage years. Despite the hardship that we faced, my dad is a cheerful and principled man. He taught me early on that you can attain success by overcoming challenges,” he says. The moment of realization came to him at the farm one day when another farmer was selling his herd of buffaloes.
“A few groups of businessmen tried to capture them but gave up after several attempts because the animals became wild and aggressive. When my dad said he could catch the animals, others were not convinced. However he single handedly proved otherwise. From this experience, I believed that consistency, working smart and hard without giving up is the formula in achieving success.” Overcoming a different set of challenges on her own is Norimanira a/p Nordin who had to leave her hometown in Kuantan for the first time to pursue a hairdressing course in Kuala Lumpur.
“I have never travelled so far in my life. To be honest, I was nervous because I knew no one in the big city. However, I am determined to complete this course so this is a test I must overcome. I look forward to securing better jobs in future once I graduate,” says the modest Nori who adds that she started working as a child by following her mum to the jungles to find rattan. Growing up was not easy for Nori, who had to travel around to live with her relatives, while occasionally living between her divorced parents who had started their own families. “I only studied up till Primary 4 because I was always moving. It was a lonely time because there were long periods where I did not get to see any of my siblings. But we are closer now and I hope to secure a more stable income so that my parents do not have to work anymore,” she shares.
The Honda Dreams Fund, initiated in partnership with UNICEF, is aimed at providing full, non-binding scholarships to underprivileged but ambitious students to help them transform their lives. To date, Honda Malaysia has provided full scholarships to 80 youths to kick start their dreams. Application for the Honda Dreams Fund will re-open from January to March 2011.
