AMPANG: Pejuang’s Nurul Ashikin Mabahwi says she wants nothing more than to put her expertise to good use and help constituencies deal with flooding and landslides.
That is why, she said, her party sent her to contest in Ampang where flash floods and landslides are common.
“I had actually asked to contest in a state where flooding and landslides occurred more severely, but my party said Ampang would be more ideal since I was born and raised here,” she told FMT.
Known as “Dr Banjir” on social media, Nurul Ashikin, 33, holds a PhD in regional environment systems from Shibaura Institute of Technology, Japan, and has been vocal about flood and natural disaster risk management.
