Global Shapers Community
Initiated by the World Economic Forum, Global Shapers Community is a dedicated NGO and network of young and talented individuals that seek to make a contribution to their communities. With over 453 city-based hubs, it is an organisation of like-minded individuals that undertake a variety of activities and projects that align with their pursuits, which are non-political, non-partisan and prioritise the greater good of the public.
As the treasurer of Global Shapers Community KL, Rebekah Yeoh's main responsibilities revolve around balancing the organisation's books on a monthly basis, keeping an eye on the budget, sourcing for more funding and also making sure people get paid on time. Despite her busy schedule as YTL Corporation's corporate finance manager and Global Shapers' treasurer, she also actively takes part in implementing projects to benefit the less fortunate. "Global Shapers was an outlet to let my inner creativity run wild when it came to community projects. There are infinite things you can do, and what better way to do it than with other shapers who contribute manpower, knowledge, experience, and support," remarks Yeoh.
