Our first #CbAmpower for the month of February is……
Dr Hajah Mona Yati binti Dato Seri Laila Jasa Haji Mohd Kassim or by short Dr Hajah Mona Kassim.
She is a mother to four lovely children, founder of muBn Learning and Growth Company, a Certified Professional Trainer and was an Adjunct Senior Assistant Professor at Sultan Sharif Ali Islamic University (UNISSA).
The reason why she is our favourite woman of the week is because of her ability to juggle being a lecturer and a company owner by day and being a mother at night. Just try to imagine… as a lecturer, she has to prepare notes and coursework for her students in her class in which she has to keep up with. Whereas running a company requires you to keep track of staffs and business progress. And then her children! Masya Allah. How does she manage her schedule…? She is, for sure, a supermom who holds the empowerment image.
Lets talk about her company. MuBn Learning and Growth is a dakwahpreneurship (dakwah + entrepreneurship) that established in 2015 which delivers quality competency-based learning and growth programmes. They offer Tarbiyyah for kids (enrichment programme for three to nine years based on the Al-Quran and Sunnah). This programme has been endorsed by Ministry of Education and Majlis Ugama Islam Brunei. And then, they also offer Hawaa 1.0 which is an entrepreneurship programme for muslimah community in Brunei.
Other than that, she has conducted various research projects including youth entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship education policy, women in business, tourism and small business management. Moreover, she was also invited as one of the panel speakers along side other local entrepreneurs in the recent talk held by BEDB.
So, what do you think of her? For me, she is amazing and an inspiration to myself.
May Allah bless her, her family, her dakwah and may she continues to inspire young muslim and muslimah out there. Amin..
