Beverly's Journey to Malaysia

Current Location

Kuala Berang, Terengganu

Hello! My name is Beverly, and I will be spending the next year in Malaysia as a U.S. Fulbright English Teaching Assistant. I'm so excited to have you along for the ride!


This week I have traveled to Kuantan (coo-awn-tawn), the capital of Pahang state. Pahang is a lovely state for many reasons, including its beautiful beaches.


While I have only been living in Malaysia for one month, it feels like I have been here for much longer because I have already learned so much.

Field Notes

Read about Malaysia’s tropical climate and environment.


Here are a few moments I’ve captured in the city of Kuala Lumpur and in the Kampung, or village, of Kuala Berang. How are these photos and videos similar to your life and how are they different?
