I like kids, teaching, and coffee.

One thing that surprises other Malaysians about me is that I am a kampung girl who speaks fluent English!

I'm good at driving.

One thing I'm proud of is how excellent I am at handling kids. My brothers and sisters never worry if something comes up, they know they can just send their kids to me.

I decided to be a voter because my grandparents kept telling me to believe in whatever they have chosen for years. But I am an adult now, and I want to make my own choices.

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

These issues matter to me because I believe education makes people think and wonder, instead of accepting whatever they were given.

I wish I knew more about the legal system.

I want other young people to know that we still have hope.
