The Writer Behind the Words

Shafiqah is a Singapore-born Malaysian who is best known for her advocacy on social and human rights issues. She has worked together with various NGOs to push campaigns and write online content. She also has been on multiple public panel discussions. She is notably known for being a columnist on Malay Mail.

In 2017, she became UNICEF Malaysia’s Twitter content manager during their #SayaSayangSaya nationwide tour (a follow-up to the Malaysian chapter of the global UNICEF campaign #ReplyForAll) against child grooming. This initiative led to the cabinet approval of the Child Sexual Crimes Bill 2017.

Although Shafiqah is most recognised for her humanitarian works, she is an experienced writer who can write about a myriad of topics as proven by her track record of working together with clients who are in the aerospace, fashion, F&B, and healthcare industry.

As someone who has a significant amount of followers on social media, she also understands how to penetrate online communities to get messages across and how to develop engaging online content.

In her free time, Shafiqah enjoys reading books on philosophy, theology, science, and religion, and penning her thoughts down independently on Twitter and on her Medium.
