Laureen Quah Ming Hui
Diploma in Communication
Graduate of 2014
I discovered my true passion at KDU Penang! I wasn’t a public speaker during my high school but I just realised how much I love hosting and emceeing events after my first attempt at the KDU Gala prom. There are just endless opportunities at KDU. We were skilled intellectually in our field of studies; we were showed to different career paths and we just have to find out what suit ourselves best. My advice to who are still exploring, just dream and work for it, you can achieve it!
