“I believe that domestic workers should be respected and admired like other professional workers. I will always be a voice of domestic workers, working to raise up our rights and to be treated fairly like normal human beings, doing a job that is of value.”


I’m the eldest daughter of my family, and starting from the age of eight, I have looked after my younger siblings. I wanted to become a teacher, but I had to stop my studies in secondary school to look after my mother during her pregnancy. After she gave birth, my father became unwell and unable to work, so I decided to work to support our family. I left home to work abroad when I was 23, and have worked as a migrant domestic worker for the last fifteen years. Life as a migrant domestic worker is not easy. There are lots of things you need to sacrifice. As a member of the Voice of Domestic Workers, I’m proud to help my fellow domestic workers in the fight against slavery and injustice, and to campaign to get back our rights.
