Hometown: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Major: Speech and Hearing Sciences Graduate Program

Languages English, Malay, Mandarin

I was born and raised in Kuala Kumpur, Malaysia. In 2016, I came to the U.S. to pursue my undergraduate degree, and I have been here ever since! During my free time, I enjoy exploring the many trails the Pacific Northwest offers, whether it is in the mountains, the coast or along the river. The closer it is to a water source, the better.


As part of my master's program, I am given the opportunity to explore and work with different populations with a variety of communication challenges. I am particularly interested in working with the pediatric population. I am excited to be a part of ICSP where I will have a chance to represent Malaysia and learn so much more about the different cultures
around the world. Our communication is so intertwined with our culture!
