Reena Sri Selvarajan received award from TheMINDS Assosiation for “Outstanding Achievement in Undergraduate Studies” for achieving excellent academic performance, demonstrating extraordinary leadership, and participation in community based support programs by Dato Ambiga Sreenevasan.
Reena was familiar in receiving achievement award since her primary school. She received The Dumex Championship Award (Best student in the State of Selangor), awarded as Best Student in SPM (school level) and awarded as Best Student in Tamil Literature (school level).
Reena, from SJK(T) Simpang Lima,Klang has made her school proud of her. When iTimes interviewed her, she said, “I am from Tamil and I know the hardship students going through. Once I completed my education, I will serve my community in return. At the moment I am a Motivator in ‘Tamizh Vizha’ organized by ICS UniMAP for Kangar Tamil School students. I have delivered motivation talk to children and conducted activities related to team building.”
“I also joined community program organized by UniMAP in collaboration with UniMAP Space Science Club in which I’m the founder. We carried out activities in ‘Kampung Titi Tinggi Hulu’ to create awareness among children about space science and education.”
“I’m planning to start-up a trust and including undergraduates to be a part of mentors in this. We know most of the time the children from the welfare homes are always left behind in schools. So, this trust will be playing part in the education like free tuitions and so on,” she added.
“Education is the key to success. That is not the only thing, moral values also plays a big role in ones achievement. A youth should always be able to develop the entrepreneur skills and able to multi task. This will develop the credibility of the youth himself.
Reena is aiming to for her PhD and wants to be a lecturer. iTimes wishes her good luck in all her upcoming achievements.
