An optimist. A nature lover. A thrill seeker. These are just some of the ways to describe Lee Qai Qet. His grounded and kind disposition has earned him much affection both within and beyond the Faculty. Although a city boy at heart, he gravitates towards much more invigorating passions such as the environment and sports.
Attributing most of his interests and values to his teenage days as an active member of the Scouts Association of Malaysia, Qai Qet recalls being inculcated with the spirit of altruism and generosity. He learned to build relationships and developed new skills by participating in a myriad of camping and volunteering activities. Furthermore, senior members would often return to guide junior members in said scouting activities, cultivating a culture of brotherhood.
Nurtured by these practices, he grew up to be the kind and warm person he is today: ever ready to lend a helping hand to those in need. 17-year-old Qai Qet was even awarded the prestigious King’s Scout Award — uniquely endorsed by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and nine Sultans of Malaysia — as a testament to his dedication as a Scout. His determination and commitment in his scouting endeavours have since bled into other aspects of his life, including his journey into law school.
