Hi there! Let me introduce myself.

Born in a family of educators and grew up to stories of her late father and how education made a difference in his life. As a former teacher at SMK Green Road, Kuching and former teacher coach in Teach for Malaysia, she hopes that every child, especially in the interiors of Sarawak will have access to good education.

Sarah is deeply passionate about 3 things besides Education: the Arts, youth development and good coconut milkshake. She also fundamentally believes in the endless potential of young people, and the good they can bring to society.

She's currently looking for opportunities to collaborate and give back to her homestate of Sarawak.
