Everybody has some creativity in them—whether it’s filming a food Reel, making music or even doodling. However, having your voice heard through the art you create and turning that everyday creativity into a full-fledged career isn’t always the easiest thing to do.

Recognising the untapped talents among Malaysians, popular IT brand, HP, is back with the 2021 HP Mentorship Project! HP is partnering with three Malaysian creators promising an innovative mentorship journey using HP’s cutting-edge devices.

If you’ve always wanted to create beautiful music and thought-provoking art, this initiative gives young creatives like you an opportunity to grow your talents and take them to greater heights.

This project also aims to enable enthusiastic and passionate young Malaysians to push boundaries and produce an audio-visual art piece using HP Malaysia’s latest generation of laptops. As part of the program, each mentee will receive a HP laptop equipped with thoughtful innovations.

HP’s smallest and lightest ZBook is designed for creators and professionals who are looking for a lightweight workstation that can deliver enough punch to get things done with pro-level performance and a colour-accurate DreamColor display.

Of course, nothing beats real-life experiences and professional guidance, so HP has sought the help of three popular personalities. Serving as mentors, they’ll be walking participants through step-by-step, to give you the head start you need to excel in your creative fields.
