Good Things #15: UNDI 18 - Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia

On this episode of Good Things, we chat with two youth activists and advocates who started the movement to lower the voting age in Malaysia from 21 to 18, Qyira Yusri and Tharma Pillai, Co-Founders of Youth Advocacy group, UNDI 18. This week, both of them were chosen by Forbes for its  annual “30 Under 30 Asia” list. They were listed under the ‘Social Impact’ section for their efforts in promoting youth representation in politics as a social enterprise, as well as their highly lauded Parlimen Digital initiative. We talk to them about their journey, their inspirations and why we need to lower the voting age from 21-18 immediately.
