Tini Design House, an event planner, executed an unique photoshoot in conjunction with International Women’s Day this year. Six women were featured in this shoot, in addition to a team of experts who worked on their look.

Among the many who have worked on this shoot are stylist Yogash, makeup artist Jaynita Ashok, copywriter Deborah Joy Peter, photographer Studio 27, saree drapist Thivyan and Imeldaa Murugan.

The team chose an interesting theme for the shoot, Forged In Toughness. The theme is said to underscore the role each woman plays on a daily basis to challenge stereotypes, fight bias and collectively create a world with broader opportunities for all.

Bodybuilding has unleashed my true potential and lifted my confidence to a level that allows me to positively impact others and lead by example. My targeted regimen demands patience, panache, and persistence. Whenever I hit a wall, I take a knee and realign my efforts so that my sights are set once more on my goals. When my husbandโ€”who himself has been in the arena for nine years nowโ€”introduced me to the sport, I took the intensity in my stride and blossomed. ๐Œ๐ž๐š๐ง ๐ฆ๐ฎ๐ฌ๐œ๐ฅ๐ž๐ฐ๐จ๐ฆ๐š๐ง. ๐…๐ข๐ž๐ซ๐ฒ ๐œ๐จ๐ง๐ญ๐ž๐ง๐๐ž๐ซ. ๐ƒ๐ž๐œ๐จ๐ซ๐š๐ญ๐ž๐ ๐๐จ๐œ๐ญ๐จ๐ซ. While a doctor by profession, I have always had a deep affinity for athletics. Just a few years ago, I trained extensively for my first ever marathon. It was then that I realised fitness was a welcome distraction I would turn into a core pursuit. My then struggle was diet. In a bid to tackle this hurdle, I adopted a healthier lifestyle and haven't looked back since. As an avid multitasker, effectiveness and physical upkeep are rule-of-thumb. Consequently, I make room for growth.

Athletics has been a prominent part of me since the age of ten. My mother is my foremost inspiration. Her masterful juggling across vocation, home, and sport inspired me to excel on the academic and extracurricular fronts. Choosing to follow in her footsteps, and knowing full well that emulation at this level was a tall order indeed, I set right to work. I categorically believe that sports, as a weapon of acceleration, can be a launchpad for success if harnessed correctly. ๐’๐š๐ฏ๐ฏ๐ฒ ๐ฌ๐ฉ๐จ๐ซ๐ญ๐ฌ๐ฐ๐จ๐ฆ๐š๐ง. ๐‡๐ข๐ ๐ก ๐š๐œ๐ก๐ข๐ž๐ฏ๐ž๐ซ. ๐Œ๐ž๐๐ข๐œ๐š๐ฅ ๐ฉ๐ซ๐š๐œ๐ญ๐ข๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง๐ž๐ซ. This sacred trajectory has instilled in me discipline, diligence, and determination so I am always pushing the envelope on achievement. My family, coach, and friends are my ultimate backers. Being an athlete has opened doors for me to include valuable travel and networking. Wearing the hats of doctor, runner, and more is no easy feat, but my feminine fierceness has transformed me into a force of nature. I have discovered that I need only trust myself and dare to dream.

Athleticism defines me. It took me from a noonday nobody to a powerhouse with pizzazz. In many ways my saving grace, being active fills a void and has removed the word quit from my vocabulary as well as revived my ferocity. I have faced hardships along the way, particularly when it comes to nursing injury upon injury. Still, a deep desire to keep the dream alive remains my truest motivation. Another key driver is a family whose support has never wavered. ๐๐ข๐  ๐๐ซ๐ž๐š๐ฆ๐ž๐ซ. ๐๐จ๐ข๐ฌ๐ž๐ ๐ฉ๐ž๐ซ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ซ๐ฆ๐ž๐ซ. ๐–๐š๐ญ๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ๐ฉ๐จ๐ซ๐ญ๐ฌ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ณ๐š๐ซ๐๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ. Having loved ones bolster my essence when I am weathered is a gift I never take for granted. To be an honest hustler while simultaneously a dream-chaser is no walk in the park. Therefore, smart planning and optimum performance are what it takes to stay ahead of the curve and dominate. Verily these are the pillars which hold me up when all else fails. My two-cents to anyone in search of prestige and purpose is this: be prepared to keep steady and roll with the punches.

My passion for karate sprung from childhood. Since those early years and as a person constantly on the go, this martial art extension has been a means to channel my energy constructively and build endurance. For me personally, health is not a luxury to be enjoyed only by an elite few. It’s a free-for-all, and the path there is fitness through pure motion. Thus, Physical Education is a natural progression. The fusion of rigour and perseverance delivers a firm foundation. ๐“๐ž๐ฅ๐ž๐ฏ๐ข๐ฌ๐ข๐จ๐ง ๐š๐œ๐ญ๐ซ๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ. ๐–๐ž๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ง๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ ๐ฆ๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐จ๐ซ. ๐Š๐š๐ซ๐š๐ญ๐ž ๐ฌ๐ž๐ง๐ฌ๐ž๐ข. I am also an actress who has starred in films including Thigil and Unakkagathane and played either the lead or villain. It is a balancing act trying to clinch it all. Yet, when unbreakable will power is exercised, anything is attainable. Good time management equals productivity. Therefore, constantly breaking boundaries and investing in my self-evolution is my recipe for ardour. These are the self-governing laws by which I direct my existence and control my day-to-day.

Rhythmic gymnastics is by no stretch of the imagination for the faint of heart. Having pursued it as my most devoted undertaking for several decades now, I look back on the journey traversed and am often rendered speechless. Though a daunting trail lined with an intense outpouring of blood, sweat, and tears, it has been the ultimate labour of love for me. An illustrious space steeped in prestige, I am proud of the sheer drive and distinction mustered by self to get here. ๐‚๐ž๐ฅ๐ž๐›๐ซ๐š๐ญ๐ž๐ ๐œ๐จ๐š๐œ๐ก. ๐“๐ซ๐ฎ๐ž ๐ญ๐ซ๐š๐ข๐ฅ๐›๐ฅ๐š๐ณ๐ž๐ซ. ๐†๐š๐ฆ๐ž ๐œ๐ก๐š๐ง๐ ๐ž๐ซ.

In 2018, the greatest honour of my painstaking career was presented to me when I snagged the award for Best Coach. As secretary general for the Malaysian Gymnastics Federation, my primary aim is to develop as well as improve the standard of the sport nationwide and further boost its appeal amongst athletes.

In the thirty-one years I have lived and breathed, my mantra has been what my father impressed upon me as a childโ€”that obstacles are a stepping stone to outsmarting defeat. Whether hustling to get the job done or teeing off to terrific, my unique brand of excellence, as evidenced by my disruptor-style leadership, translates to breaking the glass ceiling. I challenge the status quo, hit the ground running, and fight for my day in the sun because winning is where I dominate. ๐‚๐ž๐ซ๐ญ๐ข๐Ÿ๐ข๐ž๐ ๐ ๐ซ๐š๐ฉ๐ก๐ข๐œ ๐๐ž๐ฌ๐ข๐ ๐ง๐ž๐ซ. ๐„๐ฏ๐ž๐ง๐ญ ๐ฌ๐ญ๐ฒ๐ฅ๐ข๐ฌ๐ญ. ๐๐ฎ๐ฌ๐ข๐ง๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ ๐จ๐ฐ๐ง๐ž๐ซ. Sports, martial arts, startup, artistry, interiors: I do all of these and more. Why confine ourselves to boxes when variety is the spice of life? I may possess the youthful exuberance of a millennial but one would be remiss to mistake my zest for misplaced enthusiasm. A seasoned creative, taekwondo black-belter, interiors curator, golfing aficionado, coach, female empowerment advocate, and woman of agency, I celebrate the freedom of choice, voice, and action. No regrets.
