My role covers mainly on Anugerah Hijau 2015. I started with the annual roadshow to promote the competition throughout the Klang Valley. This experience has brought me to places that I never thought I would reach although being in the same state like Banting, Kuala Selangor, somewhere in Subang and Shah Alam and many more places.

Besides that, I have worked on Knights of Nature Sustainability Camp Langkawi, Etiqa events and other office related duties.
