PFAA Connects


PFAA Connects

Since its inception, the Perdana Fellows Alumni Association (PFAA) has  provided passionate alumni of the Perdana Fellows Programme a chance to voice out their opinions through our various flagship events. However, there has never been an outlet where alumni can contribute their opinions on various current issues, be it on the national or international front. Until now.

PFAA Connects aims to bridge that gap by bringing the voices of our members to the forefront. Through this initiative, the team aspires to publish weekly articles that will share our collective experiences, be critical of the status quo,  and hopefully initiate further discussion among youth in Malaysia. All in all, we aim to collect voices of youth and project them on the main stage.
