Sunway students’ WHAT bazaar in aid of Women

Following the biggest trend in town, Sunway University’s Diploma in Events Management students organised a bazaar to raise money for women who are suffering from mental, emotional and physical abuse and financial issues. The event titled WHAT Baazar, that stood for Women Hoping for A better Tomorrow showcased a range of activities that were fashion and art centred.

Held at Jaya One, some of the activities that took place included the fashion show, live bands, make-up tutorials, martial arts demonstrations, talks, lucky draws and interviews with celebrities such as Sazzy Falak and Dina Nadzir. According to the Head of Sponsorship of the project, Dayangku Selviah, the interview with both these celebrities were enlightening and fun. “Just five minutes into the interview with these amazing personalities was enough to give us insights into how these modern women stayed fabulous despite their hectic lifestyles,” she quipped. Sazzy and Dina also shared their thoughts on society today and shared some advice to listeners.
