Episode 7: Gaik Cheng KHOO

“I want to be able to change things and maybe this little vote can do something …”

Gaik Cheng Khoo reflects on her childhood growing up in Penang; her early aspirations as a musician which took her to Austin, Texas; her academic career which spans Vancouver (Canada), Singapore, Canberra (Australia), and full circle back to Malaysia. We discuss home and identity, activism and academia, and the unexpectedly emotional act of voting.

Co-hosts: Helen Leung and Audrey Yue
Recorded on December 29, 2019 in Penang.
