Malaysian I am a regular 16-year-old student who has been to more than twenty countries before. Given that both my parents are embroiled in business, it is impossible for me to avoid it.
Going to new places has given me a lot of new experiences and memories. I have tried various types of food, I have been able to go to breath-taking places and I also have got the opportunities to meet new people. However, the most priceless thing that I have gained is I have come to realism that I am indeed the most compatible with my own country, Malaysia. Unexpectedly, this has brought me to be better citizen.People nowadays are too ignorant to realism how lucky they are to be born in such a peaceful country like Malaysia. Of course, there are people doing campaigns and advertisements to lift the national spirits in us on the televisions and newspapers. But let’s be honest here.
How many of us really care about those efforts? How many of us actually took the time to know our own country better? The only time Malaysian bother about these things is on the 31st of August, which is the Independence Day. However that only lasts for a day though. On that day, people go around singing the cantonal anthem, displaying Jugular Gentling and saying “Marked! Three times repeatedly, and that’s it. The very next day, people go back to their daily lives.
As a mere school student, I know that It Is nearly Impossible for me to change this whole situation in the blink of an eye. However I believe that I should not stay still and Just watch these unfortunate happenings happen In front of me. Succeeding in my studies Is the first step I have to achieve In order for me to dream bigger. My ultimate wish is to be a pediatric surgeon, as I believe that saving children’s lives means giving them the opportunities to lead our country for the next generations.Did you know that according to a foreign research, Malaysia has been found to be the country with the least racially tolerant citizens? This assumption has to be changed! We have to prove to the world that although we consist of different races, we can also live In peace together. Malay, Chinese, Indians and other races – there Is absolutely no difference between us as we are Just human beings living together under the roof of Malaysia. Instead of being racist, why don’t all of us unite and push our country forward?Only when all of us are united, we can maintain the sovereignty of our country.
We should live up to our 56th National Day celebration theme that Is – My sovereign Malaysia, my native land. Only talks and no actions will bring no good to our country. Barack Obama once said, “I say what I mean, and I mean what I say.
” Obeying the laws, upholding the ‘Ruckus Engage’ and promoting racial unity are some of the few things that should be practiced by all of us. Only when we have proven ourselves to be dedicated citizens, then only each of us can proudly say, “l am a Malaysian.
