When I studied in Taylor’s University few years back, I wanted to join Maybank Go Ahead Challenge. Unfortunately back then, it’s hard to find friends that interested with this kind of contest. I really love this kind of contest/challenge because it will definitely help you to be a better person and push your limits.
The Maybank GO Ahead. Challenge, which is now in its fourth year, is a multi-disciplinary talent recruitment competition open to recent graduates and final and penultimate-year students from more than 20 countries worldwide. Conceived as a way to bolster Maybank’s already strong position in South-East Asia, the Challenge will ensure that Maybank continues to attract the very best in graduate talent from the world over.
This year, I manage to follow Maybank Go Ahead Challenge update through their social media and it is really interesting when you can see the student have to challenge theirself. I had opportunity to attend their Gala Dinner and thank you Chirstopher Tock and Jessica from Social Grooves for the invitation.
Trust me, it’s totally worth to spend my birthday night in the event. Yes, that night is my birthday day.
Challengers in the Global Finals have been drawn from 14 countries worldwide, including the UK and USA. All Finalists have proved themselves the best their country has to offer in a series of qualifier stages including Campus and National Levels in their respective countries. The Global Finals of the Maybank GO Ahead. Challenge 2015 kicked off at Menara Maybank,

“It’s been an amazing journey and experience as #MGAC2015 has connected me with so many people that I never thought I’d meet!” It has always been #MGAC’s vision to connect people and touch lives through this competition. A chat with Tom from The University of Nottingham had proved that we are doing something right thus far 😌 Glad that #morethanachallenge had forged good memories and friendship for all that was involved.
