Caprice, a 31 years old man from Damansara, has become a social media influencer and founded various educational tools such as smartsurau, mengaji.com, rajin application and classruum.com. He shared his inspiring stories, including how he started his first business while failed to make it successful initially, how he overcame his mental health issue such as depression, from blocking himself alone to bring meaning back to his life. He shared what Malaysians can learn from the rapid growth of neighbour countries such as Japanese and Korean who are able to change their mindset and gain success.
Caprice advised students to look for opportunities constantly, “Don’t give up and continue trying until you get there”. He asked students to continue knocking the doors and he is sure that one of the doors will open eventually. He has been there before and he knew what it looks like, “I knocked on the door from 1 till 47 and it finally opened for me.” “An email changed my life” He sent a direct message to the Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir, stating his education plan and he received an appointment to see the Prime Minister few weeks later. Definitely, that email changed his life.
“Always give something back to your mom”. “Be different” and “Persistence” are the three most important take-home notes that I have learned for my life lessons” shared by Caprice.
