Ajinder can call on almost two decades of experience in the education, adult training, administration, communications and journalism sectors. She was one of the three pioneer journalists who started at malaysiakini.com on its first day in 1999, subsequently covering some of the country’s most high-profile court trials and human rights issues.
Ajinder braved tear-gas on the streets to report for malaysiakini.com during the reformasi movement, with her stories picked up and translated into various languages by international organisations such as the United Nations and the South East Asia Press Alliance.
She has since become a lecturer teaching human communications, public relations and journalism at HELP University, leading to her appointment as the Head of its Faculty of Communications.
Known for communicating with charisma and energy, Ajinder is now back at malaysiakini.com to drive forward the School of Media Studies @kiniacademy. Here, she is developing practical and industry-relevant courses for Malaysia’s next generation of content producers.
Ajinder graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree majoring in English Language and Computer Science from Universiti Putra Malaysia in 1999. She also holds a Masters in Corporate Communications and is currently pursuing her MBA with the Swiss Management University, Switzerland. She is also a PSMB/HRDF certified trainer.
