APAcS 16/17 Elections – The Candidates

This Friday, you have to make time for the elections because as a Level 14 student, you have an influence on the next APAcS’ leadership.

Our friends have stepped up, taking this opportunity to make themselves better and in similar importance, make Level 14 better. We interviewed the contesting candidates for a chance to find out what they have up their sleeves for APAcS 16/17.


Alya Jasmine, Ismail Hakim and Syed Farhad are contending against each other for the presidential position. Rahman, on the other hand, runs for VP-ship. We asked them, “How do you aspire to contribute to the association, and Level 14 at large?”

“My ultimate aim is to make APAcS the most influential student body in Malaysia. Ambitious? Yes. Impossible? No!

I shall do this through an immaculate framework of a strategic plan and its proper operational execution called The APAcS Trifecta. My emphasis is on collaborations – both within and beyond our beloved Level 14.

So vote for AJ, your next legendary APAcS president who talks the talk and walks the walk!”

People oriented activities – Create better bonding between us

Enhanced cohesiveness of APAcS, UCISCO, 14Care, student ambassadors, IM Crew and APTC.

“The primary objective of APAcS should be to serve the students and prepare them for the future. Given the opportunity to be president, I believe together we can create a framework for success by ensuring that all students graduate on time and are able to secure gainful employment upon graduation.

Through teamwork and collaboration by students with APAcS, its wings and just the right amount of leadership, we can turn this vision into reality.”

“As Vice President, I aim to bring improvement to the relationship among our students. I want to foster more meaningful interactions and encourage acceptance of each other. 

Let’s have a Level 14 where we no longer only know each other as someone who we pass by along corridors. 

With the influence that the position bears, I will make sure that reasonable resources are allocated to making this mission a reality, and inshaAllah with good intention, good things shall come to us.”


To the secretarial and treasury candidates, we asked them to share about their most significant strengths and how these strengths will be useful for the positions they will potentially carry.
