"YOUTH CAN DO IT!" - A Youth Sarawak forum
Hey there. We're Youth Sarawak, and we're organising this forum thing.
Why? Because we happen to know a bunch of fellow young people who inspire us through their deeds and passion, and we thought it would be great if they could inspire you too!
Just who exactly are these bunch of young people? Glad you asked!

Nazreen moved back to Kuching late 2015. Aware of the huge potential that the youth in the city has, contrasted with the lack of platforms and opportunities, he has been organising small events around town ever since. Under the project name Momentum KCH, they range from arts, entrepreneurship and community events.

Oh, did we mention that cakes and coffee will be provided? (Yum!)
