PUTRAJAYA, March 20 (Bernama) — Universiti Malaya (UM) student Mifzal Salihin was on cloud nine after winning the Minister of Higher Education Award and later being crowned as the ‘Tokoh Siswa Kebangsaan’ in conjunction with the 2022 Best Student Award Ceremony organised by the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) tonight.

Mifzal, 22, a third-year student of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering was selected to receive the award as a result of his excellent involvement in the field of entrepreneurship that benefited his colleagues in the university.

Speaking to reporters after the award ceremony, Mifzal said he had created an online tutoring class called three years ago which involved the participation of between 40 and 50 UM students thus far.

"These are active tutors who teach Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics subjects. It can be estimated that their monthly income is between RM1,000 and RM1,500," he said.

The eldest of four siblings from Shah Alam, Selangor also shared his ambition of becoming a successful entrepreneur upon graduation.
