Hazlin Hassan

Hazlin Hassan has been a journalist since 2000, after graduating from King’s College, University of London, and has worked as a broadcast journalist for television as well as a foreign correspondent for Agence France-Presse. She served at the United Nations briefly in corporate communications before joining The Straits Times in 2007 but took a 6-year break from journalism between 2012-2018 to become a freelance writer. She returned to The Straits Times just in time for the historic 2018 general election. An avid tea-drinker recovering from tsundoku, she is usually busy plotting her next travel adventures when she is not writing stories.
