Once I have proven to myself that I am smart enough to get a degree I want to see the world and do what I really love; writing. I love being a fashion writer but I am also interested to write from a bigger picture. I recently went to Vietnam and realised that the world has so much to offer and all I have been doing is cooped up in my room with my books. Being exposed to other cultures and lifestyle enables us to see the world from a whole different lens. More importantly, I would like to share the experience of crossing a motorcycle war zone that is the Saigon roads, how the Thais cope with their massive traffic, how the French make perfumes and the Italians make pizzas!
I am 21 years old and I enjoy good food. Most of the times I am a second-year Accounting and Finance major. Other times I am a freelance fashion, beauty and health writer. I am still struggling to self-learn the ukulele. I am a varsity netball captain and occasionally I play futsal. I enjoy travelling, watching theatres and comedy shows. Desserts and Japanese food are my guilty pleasures. I probably spend a big chunk of my allowance on food.
How I Plan To Go Forth
The RM20,000 will help me get started with my first trip. I am thinking South America. They are rich with cultures and are home to exotic landscapes like the stunning Machu Picchu, the Amazon and the Angel Falls. There are so many things I can write about them. Needless to say, they have amazing cultures. It would be fantastic to get a tip or two about my latin dance skills at its place of origin. And while I am there, I can also explore the local fashion and styles! The prize money should cover the travelling and accommodation expenses and help me get by. Once I start submitting my articles, I will have an income that I can save up for my next trips!
