What’s more intimidating than giving a speech?
Sharing a stage with some seriously amazing women travelers, the kind who’ve scaled the highest mountains, biked solo across the globe or still travelling at age 75! Wish me luck guys, because I’ll be speaking at ZafigoX 2018!
I can’t tell you how humbled, honoured and surprised to receive Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir’s invitation to speak at ZafigoX.
Organised by female travel portal Zafigo , ZafigoX is the brainchild of Datin Paduka Marina who wanted to empower women through travel. ZafigoX is the first event in Asia celebrating women and travel. This year’s edition will feature 22 kick-ass women to inspire your next adventure, panel discussions on issues women face while on the road, and workshops to help you travel better.
What I really appreciate about ZafigoX is that they’ve curated a spectrum of women who travel differently to give you different perspectives of travelling as a woman.
Talks, panels & workshops
My talk is titled “Milennial Travelling: Not Doing It For The ‘Gram”, where I’ll share stories from 10 years of backpacking solo and share why travelling can be so powerful.
I’ll also be sitting on two panels – “The Art of Travel Writing”, and “Overcoming Fear and Trauma To Travel”.
I’m nervous as hell! But I’m super excited to meet fellow women travellers. I’m also reaaaally looking forward to learning and sharing some travel tips, tricks and advice!
ZafigoX 2018 is happening on Nov 9 to Nov 11 at The Gardens Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. More info on the speakers, itinerary and tickets is on their website: www.zafigox.com.
It’s going to be an awesome weekend of travel stories and inspiration. I hope to see you there!
