Young People Shaping the World!

The world has changed. In this ultra-efficient – hyper connected environment, the age group of the people who have extraordinary fortunes fame and power today has shifted, they are becoming younger and younger.

Our cover story features two of these individuals; Wu Chun and Fan Bingbing whose recognition and influence in the region is undisputed. At an amazingly young age, both of them have achieved extraordinary careers- way beyond what most people can achieve in a lifetime. And the good news is, they are using their influence for good. (more on them on page 20 and 28).

In this issue as we discuss the topic of extraordinary careers, we take a look at how young people are using their talents to make a positive impact on the society.

Looking at some of the youths who are being featured it is clear to see that not only does the future belong to them, but this is their time now. These people are making an impact on the world today!

We show our readers that academic studies is not the only path that can be taken to achieve an extraordinary career, through the examples of Yusrina – Brunei’s first multi-award jewelry maker; Hanafi – one of the six Bruneians working with Emirates; Jason Lim another outgoing Bruneian who is based in Osaka and others. These young professionals prove that an extraordinary career can indeed be attained via the non traditional paths – as long as you are determined to put your entire mind and soul into whatever you do.

If there is a central message that you take away from this issue, let it be – to dig deeper and dream bigger to achieve your extraordinary career, so that you too, can help to make the world a better place to live in.
