The glorious and triumphant return of now-19 year old Blogger, the revival of a once-grand and dare I say influential webspace that produced daily content, and the crippling anxiety of a young woman who no longer has any time or motivation to write, and feels like any ability she had acquired in the past through repetition and sheer will alone is now slowly slipping out of her grasp. Brief history of the Blog and Blogger can be found here.

Here be personal journal entries, observations, slices of life, questions and conclusions, as well as exploration of social and political topics seen through the lens of a Malaysian Muslim, feminist, lesbian, Marxist, and horse enthusiast.

Work

September 2015 until present -- I volunteer at Women's Aid Organization to co-ordinate and manage a children's program. 

June 2015 until present -- I started volunteering for the RE:ED Project, teaching primary school students of SK Setapak Jaya basic English for reading, communication, and exam prep.

January 2015 until present -- I started working for Kumon as an Assistant Instructor. I assist students with pre-school to high-school level English and Math worksheets (all Kumon levels for English, and Kumon levels 7A through K for Math). I also assist with administrative tasks in the center, setting and preparing worksheets, handling calls, monthly reports, student registrations and stock evaluations, etc. 

January 2015 -- I was a freelance private tutor available for hire through word of mouth. I taught foundation-studies level Economics and Calculus, O-Level Economics and English, pre-school and primary school level English, and introductory music classes for children (piano). 

July 2014 -- I was fortunate enough to be chosen as a Voices of Youth UNICEF intern. 100% of our work was done online, producing content and engaging in discussions and small projects along the way. Here are the articles I wrote during my internship:

  • The Million Dollar Question
  • We Just Don't Talk About It
  • Cracks in the (Political) Glass Ceiling
  • Trans Rights Movement in Malaysia
  • Women in Marriage and the Workforce
  • Musings Prompted by Independence Day
  • We're Just Under a Little Stress
  • (Plenty of Youths Get) Left Behind
  • What Does Your Society Teach You About Poverty?
  • Feminisms
  • Youths Take Action Against Human Trafficking
  • What Does Freedom Mean to the Common Man?
  • Free to Learn



If you're part of an organization that needs voluntary or paid teachers (primarily English, but I can teach other subjects as well except for Bahasa Malaysia), or need help with a children's program, don't hesitate to contact me!

I'm not freelance tutoring anymore, regrettably, but I'll announce my availability as soon as my schedule opens up.

I'm also interested in writing, on any level and at any capacity, for the topics I have written about on this blog. If you need me for this, I'd be happy to consider it.
