Silk y pas­tels are just what you need to style up your work game

W“Women have been por­trayed as in­tu­itive and com­pas­sion­ate, but don’t as­sume we’re not made for lead­er­ship.” — Hasanah Akhir, Pro­gram Of­fi­cer for Women’s Cen­tre For Change

hat makes a per­son stand­out—Isit just the qual­ity of their work? Hav­ing met and worked with the CLEO Hot Shots this year, who are tal­ented young women re­shap­ing what we think of ca­reers, I re­alised that their unique nu­ances are what make them true in­spi­ra­tions. Like how the gen­tle tim­bre of Ananti Ra­jasingam’s voice helps make her the real fighter for chil­dren and their rights. The sweet smile sand bub­bly en­ergy of Juanita Ra­mayah and Shikin Gomez? Ex­actly what makes them our coun­try’ s most cov­eted tal­ents. The quiet con­fi­dence of Heidy Quah, a re­cip­i­ent of a Queen’s Young Leader Award for her work with refugees, and the bright­ness and pos­i­tiv­ity that shone out of Malisse Tan as she spoke about bat­tling can­cer as a new mum—it’ s those same strengths that have made them role mod­els to so many.

CLEO Hot Shots isin its fourth year now, and we can­not be prouder to show­case these 30 faces as proof that the Malaysian woman can be any­thing, and that any­one can rise above any chal­lenge. Turn to page 80 to meet them.
