On 15 May 2016, Hari Belia Negara 2016 (HBN) was held at the Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), Serdang. With the theme “The Future Is Now”, the festival was long awaited by all segments of society especially youth. Among the activities were Show Case of Talent (SCOT), Robot Fair, Buskers, Street Workout and many more.
The festival was officially launched by Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi. Also present were Minister of Youth and Sports YB Khairy Jamaluddin, Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports YB Datuk M. Saravanan and President of Malaysian Youth Council (MBM) Muam'mar Gaddafi Jamal.
Our student representative from UniMy were also invited to join the event. They were Eikma Rizal Saharuddin, Mohd Firdaus Ibrahim, Muhd Asyraf Razlan, Muhammad Nurfirdaus, Choo Zian Feng and Aina Amirah Binti Amran. From this youth-building event, hopefully students can learnt something from this event as a leader of youth for tomorrow.
