AWF KUALA LUMPUR COUNTRY MANAGER
Shahzalina Ghazali has over 19 years of experience in education. She began her educational career as an Engineering Technology teacher. As a passionate educator, she holds a bachelor's degree in Technology with Education, majoring in Electrical Engineering from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. After 12 years of teaching, her portfolio took a surprise turn and she had to rebrand herself as a History teacher due to demand. Since 2015 she has been working as a History teacher, specializing in lower secondary school syllabus and has gained nationwide popularity ever since she gave free online lessons to students from all over Malaysia during Covid-19 pandemic lockdown in 2020.
Besides teaching, Shahzalina is also into charity works, particularly her students and their families. A lot of focus has been given to help the students who lack the basic necessities like food, books and school uniforms. In 2018, Shahzalina initiated School Food Bank in her current school with the help of her contacts and networking. Shahzalina extends help to her students who need recess food, books and school uniforms and necessities. Setia Alam Secondary School’s Food Bank is the first in the state of Selangor, second in Malaysia and helps to inspire many more Food Bank in other schools across the nation. She also acquaints herself with her students who cannot read and write properly due to poor social background. She had conducted a one-month literacy project with the help of a non-governmental organization and funded by private companies.
For her effort in the education and welfare of her students, Shahzalina was awarded numerous awards such as the Excellent Service Award from the Ministry of Education and District Education Office, plus Best Effort Award and Most Hardworking Teacher Award from her current school. She was also featured in TheReporter.my and China Press newspaper on 19th March 2017 for her effort in helping an underprivileged Chinese student.
Shahzalina is also an avid reader and writer. She writes about a lot of real-life experiences as a teacher and a working mother. She loves travelling and her favourite country is Japan. She owns her blog, cikgushah.com, which is her domain for her thoughts and ideas. She’s also active on her Facebook and has more than 7900 followers in Malaysia.
