Meet the TN50 ambassadors

A group of 13 high-achieving youths have been appointed as ambassadors for the government's National Transformation 2050 (TN50) initiative.
The 13 - introduced by Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin in Putrajaya today - will be tasked, among others, with engaging the public through their own TN50 programmes.
"This shows that TN50 is a bottom-up initiative, not just in terms of ideas and policies, but also in action," Khairy said.
The ambassadors said they are not getting paid for their work on TN50.
"We are paid with the satisfaction of doing something for the country," one of the ambassadors, Ganesh, said.
