Writer, Academician, Educator
Miri, Sarawak, Malaysia
Lo Sin Yee, a secondary school teacher in Miri, decided to give himself a shot at writing after an American tourist had convinced him about its life-changing benefits. To pursue the dream, he started a blog and crossed paths with many well-reputed bloggers, who shared with him a lot of useful tips. For the past 8 years, he has attended a number of writing workshops, and the feedback from different writers and editors has greatly inspired him. Sin Yee loves to write about those who are seen as the underdogs in society, on the strength of their being more original. His first published work was a writeup on Hunan, China, in the New Sarawak Tribune and once, to his thrill and delight, an article of his on an Olympic gymnast was featured in The International Gymnast Magazine.
