"I am truly honored for this recognition, and I accept this award on behalf of the many other young engineers in STEM who are juggling their careers and family life. My hope is that through this recognition, I and others like me, are able to inspire the younger generation to explore this thriving industry. This award symbolizes the shared passion for making a positive impact, fueling the nation responsibly, and I am honored to have been a part of that journey," said Zaharudin.
