Celebrity Nadia Heng shows how to add a quirky flair to your make-up

Of Chi­nese-English parent­age, Nadia Heng grew up in the small town of Port Dick­son, Negeri Sem­bi­lan where she de­scribed her for­ma­tive years as “re­laxed and care­free”. Not long af­ter com­plet­ing her ter­tiary stud­ies in Univer­siti Sains Malaysia, she was crowned Miss World Malaysia 2010. Nadia went on to rep­re­sent the coun­try at the Miss World pageant in the same year and soon, her host­ing and mod­el­ling gigs be­gan to take off.

Now hap­pily mar­ried, Nadia cur­rently has a show called “Food Magic” that airs ev­ery Mon­day morn­ing on tv2. She is also a part of NTA So­cial En­ter­prises, which runs schools for chil­dren and train­ing cen­tres for women – mostly refugees and sin­gle moth­ers. “Most of the ar­eas out­side of the city have very lim­ited re­sources and we help them by of­fer­ing bak­ing and sewing classes, as well as ba­sic fi­nan­cial man­age­ment for those who wish to earn a salary or open their own en­ter­prise in the near fu­ture,” she says. One thing’s for sure, you won’t stop hear­ing about this big­hearted so­cial but­ter­fly any­time soon.
