Hello there, thanks for visiting my blog!
My name is Roshinee Mookaiah, and I started this blog to document my journey in becoming a more empowered Malaysian woman – specifically by being more mindful, confident and well- informed!
Professional commitment: I use media and advocacy to amplify a local youth political NGO, known as Undi18! Currently working towards a postgraduate in Political Communications.
Personal commitment: I live with my partner and a beautifully gebu cat called Ramesh, Ram the Cat if you feel fancy, or just Ram if you know him personally.
Passion projects: I have a background in theatre, journalism and even short-films. Currently, I am focusing on three things – I curate a HONY-inspired platform called Malaysian Indian Anthology that I founded in 2019, I write for this Cukup.Club blog and I am involved in supporting the #111Initiative movement which pushes for more women political participation!
Since I turned 25 in 2019, I became acutely aware that I am currently at the prime of my youth, and that I should not let my life pass me by. I had been chasing an elusive ‘happy’ future – one where I would magically wake up suddenly with the realization that yes, I am happy, beautiful, smart and confident woman.
Obviously, this is not the case for Mindfulness, Confidence and Knowledge have to be cultivated. It is a long process of continuous learning and unlearning.
That is what this blog documents – the messy process and reflections.
I hope that in me writing these thoughts down, someone, anyone, would be able to resonate and feel connected to these shared life experiences as well.
