About

Firqin. She/her.

Hello! My name is Firqin (Fee-r-Keen).

I am currently an MA candidate at the National University of Singapore and a Tan Mei Ming Scholarship recipient. My work looks at the intersections between language, race and power.

Outside of the classroom, I am a programs director at the non-profit Penawar, co-founder of a bookclub and a bookreviewer. When I have the time, I attempt to cook difficult Malay recipes.
