Fencer Azfar Luqman Ong earned his ROAR Award for his remarkable contributions during the Fencing Experience, a Values in Action project held in collaboration with North West CDC. Throughout the event, Azfar displayed composure and support, guiding his junior fencers through the initial challenges and technical difficulties they faced. His patience, encouragement, and willingness to go the extra mile to assist his juniors have earned him the admiration and respect of all those who witnessed his efforts.

As a natural leader, Azfar also stepped forward during the session to mentor and teach primary school students the fundamentals of fencing, making their learning experience fun and enjoyable.
