Making history

Bright young thin'.
Caroline Ng Yi-Wye has made the country proud by acing the Strategic Business Leader (SBL) ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) examination last Friday (17 January).

With her achievement, the Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TAR) student made history by becoming the first ever Malaysian to become world number one in the examination, The Star Online reported.

TAR UC announced Ng's “world-class achievement” on their Facebook page over the weekend:

Scoring the highest marks in the SBL ACCA examinations is the latest feather in Ng's very decorated cap.

In July last year, Ng was in the team of six who won the 'Most Innovative Team' award during the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) Malaysia Business Challenge 2019.

The future is really bright for this young one.
