Muzakkir is an engineer in the construction industry. Born and bred in Yishun—home of the Yishun Dam and Yishun Park—Muzakkir has been a big fan of green spaces, wide landscapes and rising suns. He volunteers regularly with FiTree, a Muslim youth environmentalist group, advocating a greener lifestyle for the Muslim masses. Considering the likes of John Muir and Ralph Waldo Emerson as his heroes, Muzakkir would love to walk the path of enlightenment through nature. He believes that the relationship between reading nature and reading poetry is an intersection worth exploring.
