SMU alumnus, founder of Roses of Peace, and recently selected Nominated Member of Parliament (NMP) Mohamed Irshad (BBM 2014) never had the intention of entering politics. However, his desire to give back to the community led him to undertake and accept the appointment. Likewise, Joshua Lim (LLB & BBM 2011) considered himself "an accidental law student" - the first SMU School of Law's valedictorian now uses his talents and legal knowledge to make a difference in society, serving in the Policy Development Division at the Ministry of Home Affairs. Hear the inspiring stories behind these two young gentlemen, and how their SMU experience had encouraged their passion to make meaningful impact in the public sectors.

SMU Myanmar Alumni Chapter (MAC) Alumni Study Mission to Jakarta, Indonesia
Who said that study missions end upon graduation? With the aim of learning from leading businesses in Indonesia, 14 alumni members of SMU MAC embarked on the inaugural Alumni Study Mission to Jakarta from 7 - 12 Oct, visiting companies such as Go-Jek, KPMG Indonesia, Ancora, Wonderlabs, and more.
The study mission was initiated and organised by the Chapter's Exco members, tapping on SMU's industry & International Advisory Council partners. Of course, they did not miss the chance to meet up with alumni from the SMU Indonesia Alumni Chapter who warmly welcomed them!
