Biographie

I am the Senior Vice President of Strategy, Communications and Engagement at the Internet Society. I am responsible for enabling and enhancing the effectiveness and impact of the Internet Society in championing a bigger and stronger Internet. I lead multiple global teams and have a broad portfolio including Strategic Planning and Impact, Content and Communications, Community Engagement, External Engagement, and Empowerment/Training.
 
I am passionate about issues related to access, empowerment, and governance. I believe in bringing government, business, and civil society stakeholders together to explore collaboration-based solutions on complex issues including poverty, education, and the empowerment of women and youth.

I have more than 20 years of experience in ICT for Development and helped drive that agenda in developing countries through my work in the Global Knowledge Partnership. A special moment in my Internet advocacy and governance related work is being elected to the Board of Directors of ICANN by the global community of Internet end users at large.

I hold a Master in Public Policy Degree from Harvard University (USA) and a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from Princeton University (USA). I am certified in Corporate Governance by INSEAD (France) and in Management by MIT (USA).

I grew up in Malaysia and have lived in the USA, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, and Germany. I have travelled extensively and am fluent in English, Bahasa Malaysia, and Mandarin. I am in the process of learning German and a new musical instrument.
