SHAHRIL NIZAM AH­MAD

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Life -

“My mother is a moun­taineer, lit­er­ally and fig­u­ra­tively speak­ing. She has climbed Kin­a­balu, Kil­i­man­jaro, Kosciusko, Rin­jani, Toubkal, Rif, Mont Blanc, El­brus, and even reached the Ever­est Base Camp twice through Nepal and Ti­bet. I see her as a for­mi­da­ble, no-non­sense go-get­ter who trun­dles on through life in spite of per­sonal dif­fi­cul­ties and set­backs. Com­pared to her, I’m still an im­ma­ture up­start, yet to break out of my dif­fi­dent shell – so to speak – which is why I look up to her with great re­spect and ad­mi­ra­tion. I’m hop­ing that some of her bold­ness will rub off on me, even­tu­ally.”
