January 19, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

crescent_chinaRosey Wang Ma   王楽丽

Born in China to Hui Chinese Muslim parents, Rosey grew up in Pakistan and Turkey. She had her education in Catholic French schools in Istanbul, then went to Taiwan to study Diplomacy and Political Science and later to France to qualify for a French language teaching certificate. Marriage took her to live in Malaysia, where she has spent more than 40 years.

After raising six children, she received a Master’s in Education, specializing in Guidance and Counseling, which made her change careers from teaching French to counseling students and training teachers in a boarding school. Her research led her to an interest in Chinese Muslims, which opened up for her a whole new world of research in her own ethnic and religious roots and to a Ph.D. in Socio-Anthropology. She has now studied in the field for nearly twenty years.

Rosey teaches at Fatih University in Istanbul.
