Immersion into Malaysian Fishing Village
Immersion Into Malaysian Fishing Village
Hosted by Yee Ling - The Citizen Activist
Hi there! You can call me Yee Ling. I was formerly worked in New Village Department in Putrajaya where my responsibility was to promote the development of new villages and I am still actively involved with the communities. Sustainable rural development and community empowerment is always my calling. I was responsible for organising the “New Village Leadership Empowerment Convention "in Year 2019 where the concept of “Village Vision” was presented, aiming to “rejuvenate and bring new vitality to new villages." Kuala Sepetang is like my second home. I was elected as a State Legislator here in the 2013. During my years in the State Assembly, I was actively promoting the local characteristics of the constituency, supporting cultural and artistic education as well as humanistic eco-tourism. I worked closely with my constituents to bring better urban planning to Kuala Sepetang, bringing new vitality into these small places, while creating more opportunities and platforms for the people. I have a long history of working with communities and empowering them. I look forward to hosting this special experience that I have curated to create more awareness about the life in a fishing village, as I truly believe that every village has its historical value that is worth preserving.
