Hi there! My name is Chanel, and I’m going into my third year at Durham University studying Human Geography. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and studied in a British-international boarding school for secondary education. Through my studies at university, where the issues of the climate crisis and sustainability are often explored, I’ve developed an interest in climate justice and governmental/corporate accountability, particularly in climate policymaking - aspects which I hope to contribute positively to future developments. Outside of academia, I enjoy working with Malaysian-based non-governmental organisations that aim to improve national social issues such as political apathy and climate awareness. I also enjoy reading, playing the guitar, and spending time with my friends in my spare time. I’m excited to be a part of VoizDao’s 2022 summer cohort and meet other like-minded people for a better future!
