Alhamdulillah, it’s such a relief to graduate after a long hectic year. I’m glad I managed to pull through,” said the 19-year-old. Hj Mohammad Fadhli said the course, Pearson BTEC Level 2 Certificate in Business, has equipped him with knowledge on business.

“I hope to pursue a career in business one day so I believe that this course will give me the foundation,” he said.

Meanwhile, Md Muiz Hj Zamri who graduated from the same course and also runs a make-up business, said he plans to focus on his career as a make-up artist after completing his diploma.

“Having my own business has enabled me to be more independent (financially) and allowed me to mingle with other entrepreneurs which I believe will help me in my business in the future,” he said.

Last year, LCB saw 620 students graduate.
