Katrina Jorene Maliamauv is a woman, a Malaysian and an activist. For the past four years, she has worked as a Programme Officer on Tenaganita’s refugee desk, where she has had the incredible privilege of working alongside refugees from Burma, and activists from Malaysia and around the region.
One of her biggest passions is documenting the stories of migrants, refugees and trafficked persons, and in the past has worked closely with her colleagues on the development of two books in Tenaganita’s Modern-Day Slavery series; The Revolving Door: Trafficking of Refugees in Malaysia and The Global Catch: Trafficking of Fishermen.
She believes in the power of stories; of listening to each other’s voices; of saying what needs to be said, and of always speaking the truth. She also believes in the inherent humanity & dignity of each one of us, even if it’s sometimes hard to see.
