Ela embraces her journey with positivity, always adding value to her learning experiences and ensuring that every learning adventure will enhance her and her classmates’ knowledge of the Malay language, culture and traditions. Ela is meticulous and eloquent each time she presents in front of an audience. Her ability to research relevant information is commendable.
