Entry 4: Tun Dr. Mahathir
Role model is someone who made a good example to follow. So, I also try to make myself better by choosing someone as a guide in my life with hope of a successful nation.
I have chosen Tun Dr. Mahathir as an icon in my life as someone who ought to emulate. This is because he is successful in terms of various economic, political and social. He is respected worldwide for his wisdom in governing the nation.
There is little about the background of my role models. Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad, was born on December 20, 1925; also known as "Dr. M "and the asker's name is Che Det's fourth Prime Minister of Malaysia. During the term of leadership of the July 16, 1981 until October 31, 2003, he lead the country towards modernization is very fast and result in prosperity in all walks of Malaysia and the Malays can.
Best achievement is its ability to maintain peace and harmony in a multiracial country by maintaining a middle class Malays. However, he is criticized for the autocratic style of rule and is accused of cronyism. Dr Mahathir has been associated with the development of mega projects at the time of his reign as the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC), PETRONAS Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and the Multimedia Super Corridor (Multimedia Super Coridor / MSC).
Because of the success he has showed himself qualified to be an icon in the life. So far Malaysia has developed rapidly due to a person who is blessed God for my homeland.
