“I AM a storyteller. My purpose is to inspire others to tell more empowering stories about themselves and the world we live in.” This is the impact statement by Prof Mushtak Al-Atabi, provost and chief executive officer of Heriot-Watt University Malaysia. “So often we ask our students what they want to do and they reply ‘I am not sure’ or ‘I don’t know’. “We started to ask ‘What impact would you want to have on the world?’ instead. So an engineering student would say ‘I want to see a world where animals are treated well.’ “Then we start working with them to craft something by using their capabilities to make the world a better place."
