Mohani Niza is a versatile writer and editor with a solid experience in journalism and the non-profit sector. She is a highly analytical, creative and motivated individual with a portfolio that spans 6 years.
Prior to her first employment, she studied a BA in Journalism which was awarded by the University of South Australia and which she undertook at Taylor's University Lakeside Campus. There, she was the editor of the official campus newspaper The Inkslingers. It was also at her university that she earned the Golden Key International Honour Society award and the University Merit Award for her studies.
As part of her degree, she interned at The Malaysian Insider where she learned the ropes of journalism. She was then hired by the company as a full-time journalist. There, she was exposed to both hard news and soft news. Among the topics she covered include the Johor floods, the expansion of the proposed MRT transportation line as well as the occasional news on politics. She also wrote lifestyle stories, which include interviews of inspiring personalities in the country, stories of the latest lifestyle trends, social initiatives in town and restaurant reviews.
Since then, she has expanded her portfolio to other sorts of work, including social media management for non-governmental organisations (NGOs), project coordination, research - to name a few. Her hard work paid off when she was promoted to the role of editor at EOG Asia, a news portal on the energy industry in Asia.
In every writing engagement that she does, Mohani believes in the power of a good story carefully told.
