About

Firqin. She/her.

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

I am a writer, researcher, programs manager, facilitator, book club founder, delegate for US-ASEAN Women’s Leadership Academy, and many more.

I am interested in anthropological linguistics and gender. Through my research, I have been increasingly interested in the intersections of language, race, gender, identity and self-esteem in Singapore.

My personal interests, outside of linguistics and research, include cooking all things potatoes and writing.
