We aim to accelerate the career and personal progression of high-potential Malay-Muslim undergraduates, by providing a dedicated community of successful early career professionals to connect with.
In achieving this, we strive to give a head start for undergraduates to mara ke arah kejayaan, or move forward towards success.
WHO WE ARE
Previously known as the highly successful inaugural run of Mendaki Club Mentoring Circle, Mara Mentoring is a mentoring programme that aims to connect early career professionals to Malay/Muslim undergraduates.
The mentoring programme seeks to aid the personal growth and career path of the young undergraduates in the programme. We are focused on four key professional areas where Malay/Muslims are typically underrepresented - Finance & Consulting, Marketing, Technology and Sales & Operations.
Lasting 6 months, the programme will conduct a host of monthly events to facilitate fruitful conversations, deep introspection and lasting bonds within mentor-mentee pairs and within the Circle community.
Each mentor will be matched with 2 or more mentees.

Director, External Relations
Owing a lot of my personal accomplishments to the help and guidance of my own mentors, I wish to better enable mentorship for the younger generation.
I am a serial coffee chatter and people learner - I love meeting with people, old and new, to understand the stories of their lives.
Programme Manager For Corporate Innovation,
Padang & Co
I have benefitted a lot from informal and formal mentors in my life and hope to give back. I'm also quite curious about designing a unique mentoring programme with a strong sense of community and family.
In the day, I build innovation communities and run corporate innovation programmes. In the night, I watch prison documentaries and when I feel a little down and jaded about life, I watch Boss Baby and Slam Dunk!
I joined this committee to make an an impact to the Malay/Muslim community and to raise the standards for the youths of tomorrow.
I am passionate about entrepreneurship, business strategies and all things digital. If I am not at work, you can find me mostly engrossed in the latest Netflix or anime series!
Investment Banking Analyst,

I joined Mara Mentoring back in 2019 as I felt the desire to pass along the help I have gotten earlier in university and the meaningful opportunity to do that came along when Hafiz and Ben started this initiative.
I am still a foot in, trying to train for a triathlon. I have been in athletics for the past 10 years and beyond this, i have been experimenting with coffee brewing and cafe hopping!
Graduate Management Trainee,
Looking back at my undergraduate years, I would have loved having this community of mentors to share how they manoeuvred through their industries. I hope I can bridge that gap for my juniors.
I'm obsessed with market trends of the fashion/luxury industry, especially vis-a-vis its influence in popular culture & social media. When I'm not online, I love morning runs & long-distance cycling!

I would like to contribute back and make a difference to the students who do not have the knowledge and guidance on their career paths so that they don't have to go through this journey alone.
EEE, Energy, Energised & Edge are traits that describe me as a person. I’m always cheerful and I enjoy rock climbing with friends during my free time.
