Aisha also shared a short version of her personal story in her own words:

“My name is Aisha Jamaluddin Aziz and I live in Damansara with my mom, my uncle and aunt, cousins and grandma. My family is really important to me and I’m also close to another aunt, uncle and cousins. My dad is a very talented musician and he lives in Keramat, I spend some weekends with him sometimes and he is also an important part of my life. I also have a half brother and half sister. Family is first but I enjoy going to school and hanging out with my friends.

My interests are horseback riding, singing, swimming, art and fashion. I love making a difference in the world, especially for all types of people with different abilities like Downs Syndrome and Autism. I have awesome teachers at school who help me with things I need to know in life. My mom is an amazing and creative person with a very cool job. I love her so much.”
