The World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF) Foundation, through its Young Leaders Network (WYN), in collaboration with the Young Moro Professionals Network (YMPN) of the Philippines, organized the WIEF Young Fellows (WYF) 2014, which took place last June 18 – 24  in Manila, Philippines.

Supported by the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) and Naza World, the WYF 2014 was specially designed to shape future business leaders from all around the world, instilling in them a profound entrepreneurial mind-set and a strong sense of social purpose. The 7-day intensive programme was attended by 24 young leaders from 16 countries including the United Kingdom, Iraq, Russia, the United States of America, South Africa, Singapore, Philippines and Malaysia.

Articulating a social purpose at the corporate level, adhering to a set of common principles, and agreeing in a common vision for partnership across sectors can set the stage to create significant benefits for society and returns for companies. The effects of globalization and the internet further influence the value systems of organizations. Cultural values within the same organization vary from person to person and this drives a need for more individualized and intricate management plans. These are values we should all share.

“If we want a better world, we need to inspire the future leaders of the world. There is absolutely no denial on this simple notion; and this is why the WIEF Young Leaders Network was created 8 years ago. It serves as a global platform for young people of different backgrounds to connect and collaborate, be it in business or social programme,” expressed The Hon. Tun Musa Hitam, Chairman of the WIEF Foundation.

Ebrahim Patel, Chairman of the WIEF Young Leaders Network, added, “The changing dynamics of the world has challenged the way business is carried out.  New industries and global business giants are emerging on a daily basis. Weighing against this are political changes, economic instability and resource scarcity which has created demands for a new generation skilled with leadership. This is what we are striving for – to provide an avenue where our young people can truly experience the world, gain insightful knowledge and be inspired to be positive change leaders.”

“The WIEF Young Fellows 2014 is indeed exciting. It allows our young leaders to learn about the city of Manila – its business and social landscape. It provides our diverse group the opportunity to interact with global cultures and build strong personal networks. It is imperative that we create such platforms for our young leaders because, aside from equipping them with the skills to create profitable business, we also want to see them benefitting humanity,” added Bai Rohaniza M. Sumndad-Usman, Chairperson of the Young Moro Professional Network.

A Dermatologist Shares Her Skin Secrets

Topical creams and anti-aging regimens can only do so much. If you want to take care of your skin, you should also watch your diet. Remember: garbage in, garbage out. The condition of your skin can be a reflection of what you eat.”

– Dr. Mylah Joven, Dermatologist

When you are not protected by sunscreen, especially if you’re out in the sun from 10AM to 4PM, UV rays can cause visible inflammation (sunburn) as well as inflammation on a cellular level.
