Extra Hari Raya joy for family
For Madam Rokiya Camaloudine, this year's Hari Raya Aidilfitri is extra special. While her family will be welcoming the end of Ramadan, she will also be celebrating something else: A new diploma in fashion technology (merchandising and marketing).
It will not only allow the 38-year-old to pursue her dream of working in the fashion industry, but also give her another way to give back to society.
"With the skills I have, I hope to help others who didn't have the same opportunities as me," said the mother of six who already volunteers at mosques and her children's schools.
"Mothers with young children often find it difficult to work, so I hope to teach them how to sew so that they can earn some money."
