Commission Zarith for a report


It has been a global soul search for me to fit in somewhere I can safely and finally call my ‘home’. Born on a tropical island in Southeast Asia, romantic English literature from the likes of Jane Austen & William Wordsworth took me to a faraway misty English countryside.

I was an academic, which enabled me to be admitted to one of the best boarding schools. But the shocking, brutal treatment that I received there cemented my purpose of life to help people like myself and the displaced, stateless and the marginalised even more.

I overcame these challenges by focusing on scientific research into breakthrough medical intervention. At the University of East London, I was honoured to be part of former alumni to campaign for equal and fair access to tertiary education for people seeking asylum and beyond.

I was appointed as Europe Correspondent for my country and a member of the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ). I have been in the journalism industry for the last 12 years. In my home country I was fired for whistleblowing on the government and accused of being a fake journalist to further discredit & assassinate my character.

I aspire to create a community that can champion kindness and caring. Then we can change the whole narrative and course of a country, and love will win over hatred.
