Herworld (Malaysia) - - HER STORY -

To­day’s teens are fu­ture lead­ers. They’re as­sets in the de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try, and yet they’re eas­ily dis­tracted by var­i­ous so­cial prob­lems. To be hon­est, teens in our coun­try have not ex­pe­ri­enced the paradigm shift that’s in line with our na­tion’s cur­rent de­vel­op­ment. Among the so­cial ten­sions they ex­pe­ri­ence is the neg­a­tive in­flu­ence of their peers. For ex­am­ple: van­dal­ism, gang­ster­ism, loi­ter­ing (lepak), and drug abuse. Th­ese ado­les­cents will fall out of the foun­da­tion of the coun­try’s de­vel­op­ment and cause our econ­omy to de­te­ri­o­rate. There­fore, ev­ery teen in our coun­try should choose good friends and make a pos­i­tive im­pact on one an­other’s lives – a good friend should in­spire and en­cour­age. Teens of a high cal­i­bre can em­power our na­tion and bring us glory. So be wise in choos­ing friends not just for your own good, but also for your fam­ily and coun­try.
