Angeline Chong - Malaysia

“Journalism can change the world into a better place,” Angeline Chong, 17, says.

In Malaysia, the number of digital natives like Angeline grows rapidly and with it, the risks for children and young people. Sexual predators are very active in Malaysia where no law was protecting children from sexual grooming. In 2015, 80% of victims raped by an internet acquaintance were underage. In 2017, R.AGE., a youth media, exposed this scandal to the world with a choking undercover investigation called “Predator in my Phone” that lead to a new bill in Malaysia: Angeline was immediately caught by this striking example of the transformative power of journalism.

“The best thing about Predator in my Phone is that it gave hope and faith,” says Angeline. Following her guts, she decided to join R.AGE.’s training program to become a digital activist as well. “I realised this is a different type of journalism,” she says. Having learned a lot and she is now dedicated to use her voice combined with the power of internet to bring change to her country. #SheisWe.
