Although they will be put on stage in front of seniors and experts in nuclear science, three students from a fishing village in Terengganu are determined to make the best presentation at the ‘Rosatom Youth Congress’ in Russia on Monday.

Having won a student competition during the ‘Human Resource Development for Nuclear Power Programmes’ international conference held in South Korea in May, Muhammad Syazwan Mat Sidek, 17, Muhammad Anuar Abd Ghani, 17, and Safyyah Muhammad Nasir, 16, are determined to spread awareness on the benefits of nuclear technology.

Looking at the proficiency in English and confidence on stage while in South Korea, many may have thought that the students of SMK Kuala Besut were from an urban area, but Muhammad Anuar and Safyyah’s parents are only small-time businessmen at the Jertih market while Muhammad Syazwan is the son of a teacher.

Muhammad Syazwan said there was no time limit given to them to make their presentation at the congress in Saint Petersburg, unlike the competition in South Korea, where they were given 13 minutes, including a question and answer session.
