Hani Farhana binti Mohd Hatim, better known as Hunny Madu, is a radio deejay at FlyFM, TV host at Nasi Lemak Kopi O, actress, singer, rapper and songwriter from Malaysia. Hunny has hosted, interviewed and shared the stage with the likes of Akon, Neyo, My Chemical Romance, Vin Diesel, Ludacris, Jason Statham, Boys Like Girls, Greyson Chance and so many more.
Soraya first hosted a fake radio show when she was 11 – a show she recorded onto cassettes. She was thrilled about the chance to launch a (real) career in radio with LiteFM a couple of years later.
I was lucky enough to attend Career Enhancement Talk during KDU Career Exploration Week 2016, where Miss Soraya gave her words of wisdom and life experience. She was a mass communication student in KDU and was already dabbing into journalism as a career path, when she realised that she has a keen interest in radio hosting. And the rest is history!
Leng Yik Siang
Leng Yik Siang is the sous chef at Dewakan. Staying true to his routes , the inspiration behind the restaurant comes from the combination of ‘Dewa’ and ‘Makan’, making this a very Malaysian name.
Yik Siang’s idol is his mum. He used to hang around the kitchen every day after high school, and he would learn and craft his dishes until they’ve became marvelous. After his high school days, he enrolled into KDU as a culinary student and continued his path into the world of cooking. He is a proof that if you put your mind to it, you can achieve your dreams!
Nurul Elfira Loy
Nurul Elfira Loy Binti Ahmad Sabri, better known by her stage name Elfira Loy, is a Malaysian actress. She is famous for her role as Amirah in Disney’s Waktu Rehat and Qalesya in the tv drama Qalesya. She is graduating from KDU soon and continuing her passion in acting. On top of that, Elfira Loy is also making a name for herself as a budding entrepreneur, recently receiving the ‘Anugerah Ikon Wanita Muda’ from Puteri UMNO for her ventures into business. She currently owns two clothing lines and has just launched a cosmetics brand! What else can this precious gem do?!
Zhang Yu Seah
Mr Zhang is from KDU Penang University College Business School Alumni. He is a three-time winner of the Malaysian Invasion Mixed Martial Arts Fighting championship (MIMMA) and has managed to stay on top of his studies, graduating his diploma course with a 3.7 CGPA! He is the king of the ring and a great scholar. See: anything is possible!
