+ My Story
FROM MWKA Technologies Content Strategist + Editorial Head, Lisa Goh:
It was the end of a long work-day, many years ago, when I was an intern at a national newspaper in Malaysia. The newsroom received a call that a train had derailed and crashed in Seremban, a neighbouring town. My news editor called everyone up, and sent us out in teams to cover the story. I was sent with a senior reporter to interview crash victims and their loved ones at the local hospital.
It felt like a scene out of a movie – ambulances with blaring sirens, rushing the victims in. Families of loved ones, their faces crumpled with fear and worry, thronged outside. Till today, I remember the fear of having to speak to strangers who were in a moment of extreme emotional vulnerability. What could I say? How could I bridge that gap to reach out to them and still be able to do my job ?
About 10 years on, and I have left journalism to focus on being a mom. I love being present with my children in their early and formative years. I love having the time to journey with them as they explore their little big world, even with all the tears and fears that come with being a newbie parent. Motherhood changes you, for better and for worse.
Over time, my gut told me it was time to refocus on me. To nurture a different side of me that had been sitting dormant for years. It was time to head back into the workforce, but it wasn’t easy. I had been out of it for six years. I was full of self-doubt, and my impostor syndrome was at an all-time high. Could I go back? Would I make it back?
It was then that I met an old friend who gave me some very sage advice: “It wasn’t that you stopped working. You were just doing a different type of work.” It was a lightbulb moment, and that changed my perspective entirely.
Today, I’m the Content Strategist and Editorial Head of MWKA Tech. This was my story all along – whether I was a rookie reporter, a feature writer, a mom, a content strategist – every part of it has shaped me to be who I am today. The only difference was what and who I chose to focus my time and energy on. The road getting to where I am today has not been easy, but it is my story. One that is full of highlights, lowlights, and a whole tapestry of colours weaved into it. What’s yours?
FROM MWKA Technologies Co-Founder, Mei Lum:
I’ve known Lisa for a long time. As a girl, I would find her nose-deep in books at the library. Since she joined The Star as a journalist back in 2005, the largest English news agency in Malaysia, I often read her pieces on human rights, gender equality, work-life balance, driving awareness in the community. Often, she interviewed people and lent them her resources to tell their stories. I’m grateful that she has now decided to share her expertise with our clients and the rest of the world.
