Audrey Chew Ernern (周恩恩) 

What began as a 12 year old's ranting space has evolved into an online diary. Writing has always been in my DNA and although it may seem just like event reporting, I love having the ability of returning to my previous life with a click of a button.

I grew up in Subang Jaya, Malaysia with a mixture of Chinese and Baba Nyonya heritage. Life took an unexpected turn when I was 16 and it brought me to Killaloe, Co. Clare, Ireland in 2010.

During my years in Killaloe, I had a fortnightly column with the New Straits Times in Malaysia about my experiences as an international secondary school student, provided piano lessons to children, and worked in the local Chinese takeaway.

After completing the Irish Leaving Certificate, I moved up to Dublin to study Psychology and Sociology at Trinity College Dublin and found myself working as a Global Ambassador in Trinity's Global Room. Maintaining my love for music, I sang with the Trinity College Singers throughout my four years and was their PR Officer for two.

My university summers have brought me back to Malaysia, adventuring in Korea, inter-railing and couchsurfing across Europe, teaching English in Poland and interning with Stint Ireland.

These experiences have opened my eyes to the beauty of diversity, the endless opportunities there are to exploring the world, and understanding one of life's most complicated creations - people. This may have very well led me to where I am now - working at Dublin Airport.
