My name is Annabelle Lee and I am an independent journalist based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

My interests are in gender, culture, the environment and more broadly, in telling compelling stories about Malaysia and Southeast Asia.

I believe in speaking truth to power and using one’s voice for good.

My experience is in written journalism. I previously reported on people, policies and politics with Malaysiakini, an independent news website based in Malaysia. Outside of Malaysiakini, my work has been published in environmental journalism website Macaranga and email newsletter Between The Lines.

I also have experience discussing the news on radio.

This website features a selection of my best work thus far.
