NITHYA RAJA GOPAL, 31
We take our hats off to Nithya for her honesty! Between money and love, her pick is the first simply because she acknowledges that money is what will help her provide food, shelter and comfort for her loved ones. Originally from Mentakab, Pahang, the intrepid feminist believes that her personality is quite similar to an eagle’s. “Eagles are majestic, tenacious and have a vision of their own, and they stand out from all other birds. They do not see the sky as their limit and will go all out to get to their destination. That’s exactly how I envision myself to be one day,” she says. If Nithya becomes famous, she hopes to be able to strive for gender equality in Malaysia where men and women will be treated the same in all aspects.
