Five USJ students participated the Virtual Social Business Students Forum (SBSF), organised by the Daffodil International University.



On the 25th and 26th Nov 2020, five USJ students, namely António Ambrose (BBA Year 1), Linda Ermelinda Nazaré António De Almeida (BBA Year 3), Enoch Kuok Chon Kit (BBA Year 2), Ahniya Vashchuk (BSWP Year 3) and Eva Ieong Lin Fa (MSW Year 2) participated the Virtual Social Business Students Forum (SBSF), organised by the Daffodil International University. The theme of this student forum was “Bridging Young Minds; Zeroing Poverty, Unemployment, and Net Carbon Emissions”. Besides gaining the precious learning experience and global networking opportunities, the participants also had an exclusive chance to meet Nobel Laureate, Prof. Muhammad Yunus, who is also known as Father of Social Business & Microcredit.

We have received positive feedback from student participants:

“The youth plenary helped me think in new ideas and solutions, and the keynote speech from Professor Muhammad Yunus made me realise that we should always put the well being of our society first in the process of creating a business.  We, as future leaders, have the power to make the world a fair place for everyone.” – Ermelinda

“I would say that SBSF is an amazing opportunity to create a network for youth to solve social problems, explore the ideas for Social Business, and get to know more leaders around the world. It is such a priceless opportunity to learn from people who are experienced (keynote speakers), who achieved success in Social Business and who are willing to share it with students.” – Ahniya
