Oh hey, nice to meet you !
Hello there ! My name is Hidayath Hisham and I’m a fresh journalism graduate from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM)
I have always been drawn to writing and creative work ever since I was in kindergarten. Writing up short stories, creating art with multiple mediums, and making home videos with my dad’s Nokia N73 has always been a thing of mine during childhood.
I started to become fully interested in journalism in Secondary School where I joined a young journalist program held by a local Malaysian media company, The Star. The first time I saw my writing in print, I knew I wanted this as a career.
My experiences have resulted in a diverse working background that includes knowledge of copy editing, social media, creative writing, video editing as well as web content development and design.
My assertiveness, attention to detail, and passion for print and digital media have led to the publication of several of my articles and graphics on multiple print/web platforms.
Apart from the occasional water works from my eyes, there’s also some real business that I’ve done for companies. Some of them includes R.Age, a part of The Star Media Group Berhad, famous for their global award-winning investigative journalism documentaries and campaigns.
Here’s a piece of video that I got to help assist in production and editing. It was in conjunction of R.Age’s Merdeka campaign for Malaysia’s Independence day.
I’ve also written a hard news article to promote the release of R.Age’s film, Eye On The Ball on Astro First.
