– Dato’ Kenny Tan –
In 2019, Talented Malaysia, an inaugural inter-school performing arts competition endorsed by the Ministry of Education, Malaysia, was launched. The objective of the competition is to provide Malaysian kids aged 7-12 with a nurturing platform to unleash and develop their talents in the areas of performing arts, particularly in singing and dancing. The competition challenges these pupils in singing and dancing, which will test their endurance and teamwork spirit as well as develop their characters and discover hidden talents. Through Talented Malaysia, we believe that this competition does not only provide just an opportunity for young performers to hone their creative talents, but also helps to promote a sense of achievement and responsibility, which contributes to their personal development.
“I really needed this scholarship because the cost of this course was really high and I did not want to burden my parents. I am extremely grateful to KEN for awarding the scholarship to me,”
“Since young, my mom had taught me bravery in life. We must hold the faith that God has a plan in one’s life. Being brought up in a less fortunate family, I knew that only through complete education I could stand out in life. Hereby, I am truly blessed that KEN Foundation was offered just in time to lend me a hand in completing my tertiary education. Upon graduation, I was secured with a job in KEN; giving me the opportunities to gain solid hands-on experiences to kick start my working life. I believe that KEN Foundation will continue helping other least fortunate yet ambitious students in realizing their dreams in life.“
“I am very grateful and happy for the scholarship because my parents wouldn’t have been able to support my studies. I am the fourth child in a family of eight siblings and my father is only a government staff. I am also grateful for the opportunity because I have learnt so much working at KEN.”
