Winds of Change

Prestige (Malaysia) - - Editor's Letter -

THE THING ABOUT meet­ing in­spir­ing peo­ple in your line of work is that you can’t help but ques­tion what have you done to change the world? What may seem like a rhetor­i­cal ques­tion is em­braced by the younger gen­er­a­tion who are chal­leng­ing con­ven­tional norms and rewrit­ing the rules. Sto­ries of hard­ship and suc­cess of­ten elicit awe and re­spect, which is why we take pride in our work by shar­ing these sto­ries with you.

Come ev­ery Novem­ber, the team at Pres­tige is proud to present the an­nual 40Un­der40 list, a list we have care­fully cu­rated since early this year to ac­knowl­edge the ac­com­plish­ments of 40 Malaysian in­di­vid­u­als. Spurred by the de­sire to cre­ate a sig­nif­i­cant pos­i­tive change in their re­spec­tive fields, these spir­ited in­di­vid­u­als have made it their per­sonal mis­sion to em­brace chal­lenges by push­ing the bound­aries through ground-break­ing in­no­va­tions, dis­rupt­ing tra­di­tional busi­ness mod­els and more im­por­tantly im­pact­ing their sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties. These sto­ries all have one thing in com­mon – per­se­ver­ance. I hope you will be moved and in­spired to cre­ate your own rip­ple ef­fect no mat­ter how small after read­ing their sto­ries be­cause I cer­tainly am.

Achiev­ing equi­lib­rium in life may seem far out of reach es­pe­cially in this dig­i­tal age but our cover per­son­al­ity Datin Meera Sen has the right for­mula as she bal­ances be­tween the mul­ti­ple roles she takes on in life. The mother, wife and ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of Kim­gres Mar­ket­ing shares that pos­i­tive thoughts of­ten lead to a life with greater pur­pose, which is per­haps what most of us have been seek­ing for our en­tire lives. Words to pon­der and live by.

En­joy,
