    Operations Lead, Pertiwi Soup Kitchen

Syahida has been with Pertiwi Soup Kitchen for almost four years. She is entrusted by Munirah (Aunty Munirah to most PSK volunteers) to ensure that the operation runs smoothly and that each new volunteer have a taste with the way Pertiwi manages the night runs and it’s recipients. During the day, Syahida is a lecturer of Communication and Literature. She writes when her heart is heavy, reads when her mind is empty.

Somestimes, when she has the guts to, Syahida loves coming on stage to share her poetry as an amateur spoken word poet.
