A woman of many vocations, a patriotic Malaysian with a deep affinity with nature and its preservation, Skaii has always been fascinated by nature and conserving it for the generations to come.

She studied permaculture design, and maintained food forests and permaculture installations in Belgium. Skaii is now hoping to grow The Kanshalife Project as a social enterprise that brings the benefits of the blue economy to its community and environment.
