When I was younger, I wanted to be the most influential woman in the world. But a virtual conversation (re: chatting) with someone in this very early morning, woke me up.

How It Feels To Be a PNS (Civil Servant)?


How it feels to be a PNS? That’s the most frequent question I get from friends since I become a PNS two years ago. I don’t know why every time I meet a friend that I rarely see recently, their first words is always, “So, how it feels to be a PNS?”. There are 3…

My Name is …
