Our second Cambridge Tun Suffian Scholar, Azlin binti Sabtu, is no stranger to the Tun Suffian Foundation. Whilst reading Law at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in 2001 and 2002, she became part of our Foundation’s family when she received the
Anugerah Buku Tun Suffian for her outstanding academic performance. Throughout her undergraduate studies Azlin consistently produced excellent results and ranked top of her class in every semester. She obtained her LLB degree with First Class Honours, a feat which remained unparalleled in the history of the Faculty of Law of the National University for almost 10 years.
Not only is Azlin renowned for her intellectual capacity, her contribution in escalating her alma mater’s national ranking in debate competitions is legendary. As early as during her first year at the University, Azlin had put the University’s flag high when she won the most prestigious Asian Law Debate Competition, defeating debaters from other ranking universities who were far more experienced and matured than her. Soon after, she represented Malaysia to the Asian Law Students Association debate competition and emerged as one of the best overall speakers. Since then, her active involvement in debate competitions at national and international level was immense. Apart from that, Azlin is also very active in sports. She was part of the university’s basketball and netball teams.
