Celebrating everyday heroes at
The Best of You Life Exhibition at The Curve
The Best of You Movement was launched by Julie’s, the well-known biscuit manufacturer, in Malaysia and Singapore on June 1 2014. It’s a social awareness movement to celebrate everyday heroes.
The aim of the movement is to inspire a supportive community that revels in everyday accomplishments and milestones no matter how big or small they are.
The movement called on the public to submit and share their personal and inspiring stories of people, things or experiences that have brought out the best in them via the website www.thebestofyou.my
They could make their submissions in any creative medium – writing, art and design, photography or film and music. About 1,000 Best of You entries were uploaded by participants from Malaysia and Singapore.
Their submissions have culminated in The Best of You Life Exhibition which will be held at The Curve, Petaling Jaya, from 28 October to 2 November 2014.
To influence or encourage the public to participate in the Best of You Movement, prominent and popular “Influencers” or spokespersons showed the way by sharing their Best of You stories on Facebook.
Influencers included actor Fizo Omar, TV host Owen Yap, world harmonica champion duo Aiden and Evelyn, well-known professional photographer Faizal Tan Sri Mustafa, Radio DJ Sophia Chin, folk music singer Peggy Lai, among several others, with engagement from three private colleges.
These colleges are: New Era College, One World Hanxing College and Cilantro Culinary Academy. Engagement partners included Malaysia Chinese Photo Journalist Association, Persatuan Rumah Caring Kajang and House of Hope and Light).
The influencers will be present on 29 October at The Curve, together with Mr Sai Tzy Horng, consultant for The Best of You Movement, for the official launch of the Best of You Life Exhibition.
“The many seemingly small actions and achievements in our lives that are often neglected and forgotten are actually monumental,” said Mr Sai. “They represent our best efforts and stem from the love we have for our lives. It’s equally important that we take time out to recognize those efforts and achievements in ourselves and others.”
The Best of You Life Exhibition is a showcase for inspiring stories, poems, images, illustrations and videos. The public are invited to come and view the exhibition at The Curve, from 28 October to 2 November 2014, between 11am and 10pm.
The Best of You Movement and Life Exhibition will be an on-going annual event by Julie’s.
