A collective pain had enveloped the country.  As initial cries for help grew into social unrest, grassrootsContinue reading “My Internship Journey with UNDI18”

Deforestation and Climate Change

“Code Red for humanity”. This was not uttered in reference to the COVID-19 pandemic which engulfed the world in 2020, but as a warning by United Nations secretary-general António Guterres when describing the Sixth Climate Change Assessment Report released by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group 1 last month. “The alarmContinue reading “Deforestation and Climate Change”

EFT Across the Globe

In a time where the world’s economies were put on the back-burner , it’s horrifying to learn that deforestation activities continued despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

This is further proof that we needContinue reading “EFT Across the Globe”

Uncertainty in our Education System

On the 22nd of February 2021, I had sat for my first Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia(SPM) paper, Bahasa Melayu(BM).

This feeling was not bornContinue reading “Uncertainty in our Education System”

Malaysia’s National COVID-19 Immunisation Plan: The Missing Details.

Interning at UNDI 18 – The Experience

With the pandemic causing a global lockdown, I decided it was best to defer my university entry to 2021 as I felt that it was unsafe to travel and the cost of remote learning did not seem to be worthwhile. As I had a full year until my university year started, I decided that theContinue reading “Interning at UNDI 18 – The Experience”
