ZAIN HD(Founder of Wago Sdn Bhd, RandomAlphabets). Is more comfortable referring to himself as the first person. In 2008, RandomAlphabets, the arts group I founded, gathered 1,000 random people in a shopping mall to ‘freeze’ simultaneously for a few minutes. After that, I was named 20 of the most influential people in Klang Valley below 40 years old. In 2011, after almost 20 projects under RA, we did Fake Water Gun Fight. Before that, I was a judge on TV3’s Sejuta Impian. Considering my (civil and syari’ah) law training from UiTM Shah Alam, it’s unclear and unimportant how I got ‘here.’ For life, I consult NGOs and CSOs on how to promote their work. For money, I run my startup Wago doing communications strategy as well as selling ideas that walk, like the word of mouth.
