About Me

Hi, I'm Serene. I graduated as a teacher from Australia some time back in 2014. From then on, I've taught in Singapore and Japan before returning home to Malaysia in 2017. In 2018, I decided to step out of the classroom and head into the corporate world in the field of marketing and advertising.

I started with copywriting and content writing for an education company, before venturing into social media marketing for a fintech and consulting company - which I am attached to today.

My specializations include:

• An adept writer in both short and long-form content
• Article proofreading and editing
• Social research, content curation and outreach
• Visual content creation using Canva
• I help startups build their social media platforms, gain followers and generate engagement from ground zero

I love curating content that brings value to people. Nothing satisfies me more than receiving a message or comment from a happy follower who compliments what I share.
