Stateless No More
Muhammad Aiman Hafizi
After eight long-years of fighting for his identity, esports athlete Muhammad Aiman Hafizi is finally a Malaysian. Born in Malaysia to an Indonesian mother and adopted by local parents, he has lived his whole life with a copy of a photostated birth certificate and has for the better part of the decade tried seeing the National Registration Department to seek help, but with no positive results.
Just earlier this month, he finally received his official citizenship and with renewed passion to represent the country in PUBG, he joins us on the line to tell us more.
