I think that I have not done justice to my potential in academics. I help my parents in carrying out their daily work. I am a good friend and try to help them In whatever way I can.

Aims in life/Qualities I would like to improve: I am putting all my efforts in my academics to do well. I am also working on all my flaws and developing them in the best possible way I can.

Profile
I was born in 1988 in Burma. At the age of five, I migrated with my parents to Malaysia. I underwent my primary and secondary education in Fairview International School, Kuala Lumpur. I passed my GCE O Level with outstanding performances in English Language, English Literature, Geography and History and was also president of the Fairview School Art Club. I was prefect for both the primary and secondary years and was also the Secretary for the Sports House Venus. I garnered successive distinctions in English Language for the New South Wales English Competitions held annually in the Secondary years. Having studied in Ahmad Ibrahim Kulliyah of Laws in the International Islamic University of Malaysia, Gombak , I graduated with L.L.B (Honours), 2nd Class Upper, in October 2011.

Experience
I have experience in handling people from all walks of life. I formerly worked as a teacher at Brillington Language Centre, took counselling as a co-curricular course in IIUM, handled abused domestic workers, refugees and migrant workers in Tenaganita as part of my Legal Aid Training. I have also done charity work and orchestrated personal campaigns to help collect funding and basic amenities for the Rohingya Community in Malaysia. Therefore, I have a good grasp of the techniques used to pacify distressed persons and pinpoint underlying problems.
I also have experience in analyzing and addressing root causes of problems and handling extensive legal documentation, along with experience in research on points of law and application of the said points to legal issues.
I have also had the privilege of determining refugee statuses of asylum seekers in UNHCR Malaysia starting from September 2013 to date, according to the 19511 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and 1967 Protocol.

Professional Goals
I wish to hone my legal skills in the field of human rights where I think it’s most needed and plan to contribute to society by balancing out the disparity in resources, rights and education between the privileged and the needy; and raise awareness about injustices being committed by those in power against the powerless and voiceless.

Personal Ambition/ Personality in a nutshell
    My personality can best be described by the fact that I believe strongly in justice and equality for all mankind irrespective of creed, race, gender, social disposition and so forth. Since a very young age my father had instilled in me the core values of humanity and principles which I hold as my central belief system. The bottom line is that I’ve always been able to empathize and fight for the underdogs in any situation as I believe that justice and fairness makes no discrimination. However, at the same time I do have one foot stuck in the door of reality with the simple knowledge that the life of this world is not meant to support a Utopian fantasy. However, that does not mean that we, as human beings should stop striving to bring out the best of humanity. This is because there is a very fine line between what makes us animals and what makes us humans and I believe that all of us were born with the right and potential to be human in the best way possible.
     Therefore it is the responsibility of those with a voice in this life to balance the huge gap of inequality between themselves and the voiceless and desperate. Hence it follows that any attempt -whether ill informed, ignorant or purposeful – to debase the light of humanity and a person’s rights should be nipped in the bud. As Prophet Muhammad said – “Even as the fingers of the two hands are equal, so are human beings equal to one another. No one has any right, nor any preference to claim over another” and as Gautama Buddha said, “ Light a lamp for someone else, it will also brighten your path” – it is clear to me that firstly, we are humans only to the extent that we help other people transcend their humanity; that is, in ensuring they get the same basic rights as everyone else. Secondly, it is evident that even universal mores of conduct warn against creating class differences as no man is superior to another in terms of fundamental rights.
    I believe that the only way to realize the best of my potential in my time here is to help such oppressed, used, abused and powerless peoples who have been denied their fundamental right(s) to realize their full potential as human beings. Things that come easily to some of us like security, sustenance and love; these are universal rights that everyone in the world should be entitled to amongst many others. The breach and denial of such universal values and rights results in a tear in the fabric of humanity that cannot be reconciled nor healed except by us speaking up and doing something about these breaches and denials. Because ultimately that tear in the fabric of humanity is not an individualistic injury- it is one which will maim the collective soul of the world and when that happens it will affect each and everyone of us and take away our common discerning factor: humanity.
Objective of seeking job
I hope to be able to preserve whatever is left of this once lovely fabric of humanity, and what better way to help my own people who are facing persecution by the Burmese Government than by speaking up and utilizing my legal and inherent analytical and writing skills to help the oppressed and voiceless in any which way that am capable of.

Economic Development for Cap-Haïtien (EDCH) is a non-profit, development resource organization. It serves as a means to revitalize Cap-Haïtien socially, ecologically and economically.

Haiti has been suffering from brain drain. “More Haitian college graduates have left Haiti, per capita, than any other country in the world. When you think of the talent that Haiti has produced that benefits us and others, what we want to do is make it possible for any bright, young, ambitious Haitian to stay home and to build his or her country” (Secretary Clinton). In times of crises, foreigners often represent Haiti in the media and speak on behalf of the Haitian people. They explain the Haitian history, but exploit the Haitian culture. They determine the fate of the Haitian people. However, the Haitian presence is critical at this stage, particularly, in communities abroad. Haitians ought to respond to the call of duty and take control of Haiti’s destiny in order to avoid a total national disaster.

The goal of this project is to revitalize our communities, making the public domain environmentally friendly, fostering education, providing clean water, creating economic opportunity, establishing a business center, campaigning for proper sanitation and hygiene, serving hot meals twice a day, and administering healthcare services.

Haiti is an uncharted territory in terms of public affairs. Typically, foreign personnel and agents spearhead community and economic development. Economic Development for Cap-Haïtien is a Haitian effort that will operate under Haitian beliefs and values. Furthermore, it is a bottom-up initiative. Participative decision-making, consensus building, and ethical leadership are the cornerstones of EDCH. Haiti, traditionally, has a top-down structural society, which means that input from the public or community members is usually unwanted. In an effort to spur a paradigm shift, EDCH engages all community members in the strategic planning process to ensure civic engagement and inclusion.

Guirguissou Maboudou Alidou



Rural sociologist specialized in adoption and diffusion studies, the study of organizations and the qualitative analysis of agricultural policies, I have more than 15 years of experience combining research to development. My technical and academic education is strengthened by training both in theory and practice. I am also trained for impact assessment, network analysis, social capital studies, and for proposal writing. I conducted and/or participated to the participatory development of post-harvest technologies (rice, maize, yam, cassava groundnut and Shea nut), adoption studies, and impact assessments. My interest remains understanding social dynamics and interactions, which have constituted the core domains of my investigations from my bachelor to my on-going PhD. I am currently a researcher at the Programme of Agricultural Policy Analysis of the National Institute of Agricultural Research of Benin (PAPA/INRAB).
