Hi, I’m Cherisha!
You’ll usually find me caught up in a good book, eating something sweet and my guilty pleasures include, binge-watching ‘Say Yes to the Dress‘, and reading Chicken Soup for the Soul until I fall asleep.
I have been blogging for a while now and this has been a personal journey for me. I discovered my depth of self through writing and journaling every detailed piece of my life. From blogging experience right up to personal emotions. I created my blog ‘Inspired by Cherisha‘ in November 2016, and life has changed ever since. I started blogging because I wanted to reach out to many people as possible. My thoughts became words and words formed a tale.

I am proudly born in Malaysia and grew up in a native township and saw blogging as an opportunity to express myself. I adore impromptu travels, especially those beautiful tiny moments that are rarely captured on film. Oh, and I enjoy laughing a lot. Happiness, in my opinion, is the pinnacle of achievement.
I am actively involved with social work and humanitarianism has had a significant impact on my life. Since I was a little kid, I have had a profound desire to help others, and it’s grown into a life-long commitment. As a result, I pursued my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology – Social Science.
Some of my volunteering experience includes:
- Worked at the mentally challenged home for children with special needs.
- Planting mangroves to preserve nature.
- Organising a couple of street feeding program in the poorest alley in Klang City.
- Collaborated in a 30-hours famine hunger programme with World Vision in conjunction with Global Hunger Awakening to raise awareness about poverty and hunger.
The greatest gift one can offer to someone else is through our energy and expertise. I love the verse that says ‘As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.’ (Proverbs 27:17). We are alive for a purpose and until the Lord moves you, YOU are to bloom where you are planted.
I belong to the Assembly of God Church and my faith is a big part of who I am, I love the Gospel and my Savior Jesus Christ – Who loves me endlessly despite my imperfections and weaknesses.
While I empower you, I also want to encourage you in finding the spirit and confidence to be yourself. So come along with me in my diary of emotional ups and downs, ripped jeans and oversized T-shirts, salty hair, coffee beans, family fun, laughing, tears, and hard times.
