My family were invited to a talk about home-schooling at an event organised by KAM, ‘Sembang Santai Home-Schooling’ in Shah Alam yesterday.
Apart from my parents, my elder sisters Aiman Amani and Aeshah Adlina, I was also called to talk on the stage.
Nobody told me that I was going to give a speech, so when I was called to the stage, I was rather surprised.
But as it was my second public speech, I was not that nervous except for the fact that my heart was thumping.
I gave a speech about something that really matters to me, the true definition of Freedom of Speech in Malaysia as written in Article 10 of the Federal Constitution, the four sensitive issues and the Sedition Act.
To my surprise, during the Question and Answer Session, there are lots of questions that were directed to me.
Most of the questions were a bit hard to be answered since I was half nervous because I never thought that the participants would address their questions to me and that I’ve never thought of some of the things that were asked.
However, I tried my best to answer all of them. It was a proud moment for me when someone who stood up to ask me two questions told the audience that he has been reading my blog. Abang Mohd Hanif, who has actually been following my blog is also a blogger and I’m glad to get to know another wonderful and more experienced blogger. During the program, I really enjoyed the wonderful Qasidah that was performed by the delegates from Terengganu.
My sisters and I also performed two songs, Alhamdulillah by Dawud Wharnsby Ali and Khalifah Song, which we only had a day to practice.
I really wished that my father had told us earlier about it so that we can have more time to practice.
Right after the program was over, a lot of people started to crowd around me to take pictures with me 🙂
I really enjoyed the program and the chance to meet so many wonderful people and I hope that I can meet them again.
I want to thank KAM for giving me a chance to share my ideas.
It is a good way to for me to learn on how to express my ideas in front of other people and to answer unexpected questions spontaneously which are very important to me in pursuing my ambition to become a lawyer and a politician.
