11 best pieces were selected in Dong Zong’s “Embrace Diversity” Essay writing competition


We are glad to announce that 11 best pieces of articles have been chosen in the “Embrace Diversity” essay writing competition organised by Dong Zong. Each of them will be awarded with a certification and cash reward.


In the era of globalisation, the diversity of Malaysia is further enriched by influx of migrant communities, such as migrant workers, refugees and immigrants. We are different yet that makes Malaysia unique. The senses of respect, appreciation, tolerance and inclusiveness are essential in maintaining our multicultural society.
