After Cambridge, I wanted to do sustainability-related job but there wasn’t any high impact sustainability job in Malaysia and because I wanted to stay in Malaysia, I gave that up. Then series of events led me to join politics in 2012. Today, I am appointed as Minister of Energy, Science, Technology, Climate Change and Environment (came back to sustainability after a big round, and more). Simply beyond imagination. Thank God for such amazing journey. And I will do the best I can in carrying out the responsibility entrusted to me.
Coming from humble beginnings, Bee Yin is one of our brightest stars on the radar. Believing in creating opportunities for others is the key to building the nation, Bee Yin has the vital post as the Minister of Energy, Technology, Science, Climate Change, and Environment. Considering that the environment and sustainability is something that is near and dear to her heart, we say we got the right woman on the mantle.
Aside from that, she also has several charities, where she offers free classes for underprivileged youth, and a food bank that goes to feed more than 100 people.
