Hazleena Hashim

Hazleena was born in Kuala Lumpur and grew up in Malaysia. Shortly after graduating high school, she won a scholarship to the United States and braved moving solo to a new country for her Electrical Engineering degree. Post graduation, she moved to Chicago for a career in systems architecture. It was an onset early mid-life crisis that prompted Hazleena to reevaluate her life and she then decided to marry passion, fun, purpose and growth into every waking minute.

Since that early mid-life crisis, Hazleena is ever so grateful that she moved to Colorado to join the Nat Hab family. After moving to her new mountain state, she completed her Master’s degree in Business Information Systems and has moved on to learn other things such as martial arts (Krav Maga and Muay Thai), new sports (skiing and mountain biking), dancing (salsa and bachata), and reading a new book about every week or so. Nowadays, she insists that thanks to lucid dreaming, even in sleep she can be purposeful and productive. Leaving no stone unturned, Hazleena wakes up every day looking forward to (and shaping) what the day will offer.

Hazleena has traveled to over 25 countries and counting. On Nat Hab trips, she’s barefoot surfed the sand dunes of the Namibian desert, woken up by two polar bears outside her bedroom on the Churchill tundra, checked the big five list in Botswana, and crossed the Drake Passage on a sailboat after camping on snow and ice in Antarctica. Her most memorable Nat Hab trip was when she returned to Churchill with her then 7 year old son. The frigid north looked even more beautiful through the lens of a child. The trip with her son only cemented her commitment to contribute to the conservation of this amazing planet.
