Hi there! Let me introduce myself.

I currently lead and oversee strategy for the Central Region (KL and Selangor) and Alumni Impact with Teach For Malaysia, and work with a dynamic enthusiastic team. In my spare time, I enjoy helping organisations figure out how to best measure and articulate their impact. I also moonlight as a performer in the local performing arts scene. I worked in HR strategy for Asia's biggest healthcare provider, and was a Teach For Malaysia Fellow in Negeri Sembilan. I care deeply about education, empowerment, sports and the performing arts, (and any intersects between all of the above) and am happy to chat with anyone who's interested in exploring any of the above.
