'I am Malaysia' - groups debut Merdeka video series to inspire hope


In times of great uncertainty, nine prominent individuals from different walks of life will be sharing their "I am Malaysia" stories through a video series released as part of the Merdeka Day and Malaysia Day celebrations.

From Aug 31 to Sept 16, up to 90 civil society organisations under the CSO Platform for Reform will be releasing individual videos through its "Aku Malaysia" platform, produced in collaboration with video portal KiniTV.

"Aku Malaysia is how we celebrate and defend our nation. We are in this together as Malaysians.

"It unpacks what it takes to be Malaysian, how they embody Malaysia and the challenges that make them propose a better way forward.

"They voice out genuine hope in spite of the challenges of the pandemic, inequality, and unstable politics and economy. We should not give up on our Malaysia," said the CSO Platform in a statement.

Air Asia founder Tony Fernandes shared his hopes for Malaysia in the series first episode released today.
