Tan Chiaw Huei
I love to write. Friends, family and tutors have asked me why do I love to write. I never could give it a perfect answer and I have stopped trying to come up with one. All I can say is that I am obsessed with the written word. I am fascinated by the power and poison of a pen. Above all, I recognize the importance of telling people's stories, stir debate and let the voices of others teach you about your own. I graduated from RMIT University, Melbourne with Bachelors of Communication (Honours) in 2009. I worked as a music journalist at Access All Areas, a popular music website in Australia.
I wrote a piece of literary journalism article on Melbourne's homeless, addicts and how others react to these minority communities. I gave it the title, Musings of a Blind eye, which inspires my blog on PulseWire.
