Volunteer Profile

Luveeniya Samanaidu, Malaysia

Medical Doctor, 28 years old

Earlier this year, I made a bold choice of volunteering as a creative writer. I was skeptical as I had a limited perception of a writer’s duty. I thought I couldn’t give much. Joining this team helped me realize my potential, expanded my knowledge in various subjects and most importantly, I experienced the fulfillment of working in a team, who in time, grew to be my family. Being blessed with the opportunity to work on scripts for animated videos and short write ups on specific topics (i.e songs, composers, goddesses), I definitely look forward to working on more projects.
