Growing Up In A Multicultural Country

On April 18th, in her first press conference in Malaysia following her win at the Oscars, Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh highlighted the beauty and diversity of Malaysia being a multi-racial country that played an important role in shaping who she is today. First, we discuss whether this whole notion of 1Malaysia, or a multicultural Malaysia, is being expressed in the best way. And then, how does coming from a culturally diverse background give Malaysians an edge at work, and at school?
