In a nutshell…
The idea for The Borneo Post SEEDS began about a year ago, first as an idea as a weekly print-publication, and then more recently as a website.
Our mission is to give young adults a voice and a face in the news, and the chance to tell us what's relevant to them whether it's through this site's forums, email, our Facebook and twitter pages.

The Borneo Post SEEDS writer DANIELLE RINGGIT @danitbpseeds goes toe to toe with some of Sarawak’s state boxers. *** THE BOXING CENTRE at Matang Jaya looked just how I imagined it before I even got there: An open space with large mirrors and punching bags hanging from the ceiling. To complete my vision of it, the state boxers were also there undergoing their daily training under the close supervision of their coach, Fred Mandagi. Sweating profusely, focus and concentration lined their faces even though it was only a training session. These boys were serious about what they were doing, perhaps imagining the gold medals right in front of them. During their training session, I had the privilege of talking to some of these young boxers and get some insight on their daily routines and their thoughtsProject Details
