His heart for the people is also shown through the multiple initiatives he is involved in including initiatives with the homeless, sex workers and lower socio-economic groups. He went into politics after 8 years of humanitarian work, where he realised that good deeds alone cannot change a broken system. Better policies were needed.

To see more young people engaged in the political process, in the political conversation and in the policy-making process,” he said, adding that his focus now is to serve both Bandar Kuching and Stampin constituencies.
