Born and currently based in Malaysia, Steph is the writer behind stefunnylim.wordpress.com. She writes mostly on her daily musings, and thoughts about issues that probably don’t matter very much (to anyone else).
In time to come – she is looking to develop this space into an avenue for her to blog more (regularly) about travelling and photography.
Steph is currently on her gap year, waiting to finish her A-levels in June 2017 as a private candidate. She hopes to make it to medical school (2018 entry), and if all goes well become a surgeon in years to come. She is passionate about biology, medicine, education, photography/videography, travelling, climate change, and the human rights movement. Visit here to make a donation to someone in need today!
She also loves good food and binge watches Friends, The Big Bang Theory and Sherlock whenever possible.
Steph likes to sing.
She used to sing as an Alto 2 in her school choirs. She enjoys music of every genre and language, so long as it is pleasurable to the ear. She can play the piano, and hopes to play the guitar better.
