Mohksin's strength lies in his experience with various social youth groups. His active involvement in the scene since 2003, including mentoring 30 youth leaders over the period of five years, has equipped him with experience not many his age has attained. This passion in youth development has led him to pursue a career in the field. As a Practitioner of Positive Youth Development (PYD) and MOE certified External Freelance instructor (EFI), Mohksin continues to facilitate learning by creating opportunities for youths to exercise leadership, develop skills and attain self-confidence. His heavy involvement in conducting time-out programmes for schools, mostly for Normal Academic and Normal Technical streams, has further honed his skills in engaging kinaesthetic students. As an outdoor junkie, Mohksin continues to seek knowledge and learning opportunities outside of Singapore. This resulted in him being part of the committee for the 10th Singapore Malaysia Youth Camp. Thus far, he has led many Local and Overseas Community Service Projects within the ASEAN region, including initiating humanitarian efforts within the Southeast Asian region. Examples include Project Peduli Kelantan for victims of the 2014 flood in Malaysia and Project Peduli Aceh for Rohingya refugees in 2015.
