  • Getting one's point across clearly and efficiently is key to good communication, and it's a skill young people should master as early as possible. Learning to write well not only opens doors for writers but for others as well; stories bring readers to new worlds they wouldn't or couldn't otherwise explore, but only if they're written well.
  • You're never too young, or old, or too inexperienced to write. Write anything and everything you want to, in the particular style that has been shaped by your unique experiences. Never feel that you're not good enough to write because there is always someone out there who can relate to your story, someone whose life might be changed by whatever sentiment you're about to commit to paper.

Biography

Literature at University Sains Malaysia. After working in a Fortune 500 company for seven years, Alex pursued her childhood writing dream and has since amassed a wide body of written work in The Star, Going Places, Malaysian Women's Weekly and numerous international publications. These days, she provides editorial consultancy to corporate organizations and helps thought leaders tell their stories. In 2014, MPH Group Publishing published Alex’s first solo-authored book, Made in Malaysia, a collection of real-life stories that is part travel guide, part freelance writer’s manual, part Chicken Soup for the Soul, but most of all, a gentle reminder of what Malaysia, and being Malaysian, is all about.
