Batrisyia Jamal Affendy

Climate Programs Intern

Batrisyia joined Second Nature in February 2020 as a Climate Programs Intern. In addition to assisting the Climate Programs Senior Manager, she works primarily within the Carbon Credit and Purchasing Program (C2P2) to facilitate communication between Second Nature and university representatives under the C2P2 roster, particularly during the carbon credit verification process.

Hailing from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Batrisyia aspires to improve climate literacy among Malaysian youths. Working at Second Nature presents an opportunity to join the fight against climate change alongside universities and colleges.

In her downtime, Batrisyia likes to cook Malaysian food and daydreams about opening a pop-up food truck.
