Aliyah is a youth leader from Singapore and currently completing her Diploma in Common Engineering. She has been actively engaged with Special Olympics Singapore since 2015 when she was introduced to the Badminton Outreach Program and Young Athletes Program.
Upon realising the low level of societal awareness on people with intellectual disabilities and the struggles they face, Aliyah has been motivated to continue her journey with Special Olympics for the world to understand and treat people with intellectual disabilities as equals, with dignity and respect. Since then, Aliyah has completed a 3- month internship with Special Olympics Singapore, and served as a key organising committee member of Special Olympics Asia Pacific’s Youth for Inclusion Summit in 2019. She also represented Special Olympics Singapore at the 2019 Global Youth Leadership Summit in Abu Dhabi.
