I wish I knew more about Sabah’s oil rights and royalties and the unfair distribution of wealth to my state.
— Daphne, 33

I like coffee, conversation, and music.

One thing that surprises other Malaysians about me is that I'm a teacher and I bump into ex-students at the punk rock gigs I go to.

I'm good at sharing the beauty of language through music and literature.

One thing I'm proud of is finding my inner strength and self love this year. 

I decided to be a voter because of my mother, who sat me down and explained how important it was to vote. She said the nation's future is in our hands.

I'm most worried about climate change, government accountability and transparency, as well as lack of political freedom and stability. 

These issues matter to me because it affects my child's future. 

I wish I knew more about Sabah's oil rights and royalties and the unfair distribution of wealth to my state. 

I want other young people to know that we are responsible that we can make a difference for the nation.
