About

Hi, I’m Mathu! Welcome to UndercoverChick. Stick around and find out more about me.

London, United Kingdom

Mathusa Selvaratnam – Blogger | Life Coach | Traveller | Educator

My name is Mathu and I am many things squished into one entity. During my time as a student, I have been travelling around the world. Since graduating, I continue to travel and blog whilst also pursuing a career in Corporate Technology. My personal brand UndercoverChick has grown over the years as a space to help people with travel, mindset transformation and achieving goals. I am a big dreamer and a go getter and I want people to join me on this venture of personal growth.

The Sakthi Eelam Charity, the ‘Tethani Time’ Podcast and my recent joint initiative ‘Brown Babes in STEM’ are projects that I have put my heart and soul into. These ventures allowed me to connect with the community, offer remarkable opportunities and meet a spectrum of incredible individuals.

As a result of my wanderlust, I have been travelling from country to country, embraced many cultures to discover the beauty each country has to offer. I rarely stay in one place and I always have an urge to hop onto the next plane and seek new adventures…hence me being a self-proclaimed ‘Queen of Jet Lags’. There are still many parts of the globe that I have yet to gallivant and I hope to share my experiences with you.

More about me

I was born and raised in Germany where my parents had immigrated to from Sri Lanka due to the civil war there. I completed my education in London and obtained my Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. By profession I am a Software Test Analyst working for a company based in London. Coming from an immigrant family travelling was not an option always available to me apart from the occasional family holiday to India to meet my extended family or to meet the rest of the diaspora Tamil families that had spread across the world.

Since turning 18 I have travelled to over 26 countries and have taken multiple trips solo and with friends. As an educator I aim to inspire and teach people how to embark on their own journeys based on my own personal experiences. I have been blogging for over a decade and my life lifestyle and travel blog has been nominated for multiple awards. I have worked closely with bigger brands and PR companies for product placement and endorsements. Under the name of my personal brand ‘UndercoverChick’ I use my strong social media presence and platforms by drawing attention to difficult topics and to encourage my followers to make strides in a forward moving society.
