Face to face with the Chief Justice of the Federal Court

Today there was a Special Session with the newly appointed Adjunct Professor of Law Faculty, UiTM Shah Alam, the Chief Justice of the Federal Court of Malaysia, YAA Tun Dato’ Seri Prof. Zaki Bin Tun Azmi. the session was held at the Auditorium, Chempaka Building. The speech by YAA Tun really touched my heart, especially the part where there are opportunities lying ahead, just waiting to be grabbed. There are no such things as special treatments as claimed by others e.g. the law provides for allocated scholarship for bumiputras to further their studies, but the law does not guarantee their success. It all depends in the effort put in by the students, and opportunities lying ahead of them waiting to be grabbed.

I do not know YAA Tun personally, but that day, I felt as if I know this special person – YAA Tun is a simple man, approachable and His Lordship’s words are full of wisdom. It was indeed a great opportunity to meet this special person…
