The former Sekolah Menengah Agama Persekutuan Kajang alumni obtained 10As in his SPM examination and was among the first batch recipients of the Khazanah Asia Scholarship – South Thai programme that commenced in 2014.
The programme provided scholarships to students with excellent leadership qualities and outstanding achievements in academic and extracurricular activities.
Today, Nasri is pursuing a Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical) at Multimedia University, Cyberjaya.
The scholarship, he said, has helped his family as his parents are now able to support his two younger siblings in their studies.
Unlike some of his peers who have to take on part-time jobs to pay for their tuition fee, the scholarship has also allowed him to focus on his study while pursuing extracurricular activities, such as participating in the various clubs and sports offered by the university.
Similar to Nelson’s aim to give back to society via ProjectEd, Nasri too has plans to help his community upon graduation.
