With an awe-inspiring track record and a beaming future ahead, our April Alum of the Month (‘AotM’), Affendy Ali Dally, from the graduating class of 2011, is the beau ideal of a 21st century Renaissance Man.
His plethora of commitments can be traced back to his days at the Faculty of Law, Universiti Malaya (‘UM’). He duly served as the President of the University of Malaya Law Society (‘UMLS’) 2009/2010, notably represented Malaysia at the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Competition (‘Jessup Moot’) in 2009, and was awarded the Dato’ Rajasooria Book Prize 2011 — an accolade awarded to the best all-rounder student of each graduating batch. These are not just the starry moments that form the constellations of his life, for Affendy has also given talks at prominent institutions such as the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union and Cult Creative. Career-wise, Affendy has an unfeigned interest in the creative arts industry. Currently, he sits as the Group General Manager, Group Legal and Regulatory Affairs Department at Media Prima Berhad (‘Media Prima’).
Throughout the interview, we will sail into Affendy’s impressive systoles and diastoles that have culminated his name within and beyond the faculty.
