Irina Mahmad Rasid

"Coming from a middle-income family; I had never imagined that I would be granted the opportunity to pursue my interest in Materials Engineering.

With the support of Yayasan Khazanah (YK), I am truly blessed to be given the chance to study at Imperial College London.
Irina Mahmad Rasid, 24, MEng Materials Science Engineering

Throughout my journey as a YK scholar, I have received constant engagement, leadership training, words of encouragement – all of which made who I am today. I have gained much confidence in my own abilities and have had the chance to engage in research at several top institutions in the world.

Now I have been offered a place in MIT to pursue PhD in Materials Science Engineering under the MIT scholarship, yet another milestone in my life made possible through YK - a bridge that has led me to hope and reach my dream”.
