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.
My work has been published in Karyawan, Beyond the Hijab, REWRITE London, Growing up Perempuan, Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE) and academic journals.
