He took responsibility of mentoring and leading a team of EM youth conducting outreaches across Hong Kong. Talha can develop a bond with EM youth quickly developing them into Youth Ambassadors to serve the community. Talha also has great interest in music and entertainment. He discovered his interest in singing at high school and performed in many events in his school, encouraged by teachers and friends he created a YouTube channel where he uploads music covers and make vlogs as hobby to kill his free time.
