EcoKnights E-Newsletter, Vol. 5 - May 2016

Message from the President

Yasmin RasyidWhat I love about what I do here at EcoKnights is that I’m always surrounded by amazing and talented young people. I’m always the oldest and despite the fact that I’m double their age, some of my most creative and inspiring moments come from them. It doesn’t mean that just because I’ve more experiences than the interns and volunteers, I have nothing to learn from them. A few months back one of them inspired me to take my passion for doodling to the next level. Another one allreminded me about the power of vulnerability in all is full positive sense. Recently, I was learnt from a female intern that procrastination can sometimes help one be more productive when it’s crunch time. You see, when people ask me what’s my secret to running EcoKnights – I would look at them with this silly smile and say, “our interns and volunteers”. Because that’s how it really is. And I love them in all their forms, colours and silly mannerisms. 

By the way, if you feel like throwing some love our way, how about getting one of our limited edition EcoKnights tee (spotted above on our great looking male interns) for RM50. Proceeds from the sales of the tee shirt will go towards supporting our existing programs like Anugerah Hijau, Composting Workshops and more!
