Despite the fact that Malaysia is a small country, it has produced a large number of well-known and outstanding individuals. They are industry leaders in a variety of industries, including the arts, entertainment, and sports. Many young Malaysians have been inspired by them to reach the position and achievement that they have. Here’s a list of some of Malaysia’s most inspiring citizens that you can watch after developing cloud MLM software or after learning about cryptocurrency:
- Siti Nurhaliza
Siti Nurhaliza has shown that she is still relevant and excellent on social media in 2019. Siti dethroned popular star Neelofa as the most followed local celebrity on Instagram last year, for those who don’t know. The appeal of the “Percayalah” vocalist is undeniable, as she has amassed a large following not only in her own country, but also in other countries such as Singapore, Indonesia, and Brunei.
- Tze Kuang Tian
Kuang Tian, a Taiwanese actor, won the hearts of many fans across the area with his part as the otherworldly Tian Ching in Netflix’s hit series The Ghost Bride. Despite his larger-than-life on-screen presence, Tze’s uncomfortable and hesitant demeanour in interviews is charming to fans, with many expressing hopes that he would get bigger TV and film parts in the near future.
- Dato’ Jimmy Choo
Dato’ Jimmy Choo is from a Penang shoemaking dynasty. On his birth certificate, his name, Jimmy Choo, was misspelt; Jimmy Choo was supposed to be Jimmy Chow! Choo’s father, who taught him how to make his first shoe when he was 11 years old, is responsible for his company’s international notoriety for its pricey and high-end handmade women’s shoes. Jimmy Choo Ltd was co-founded by Jimmy and Tamara Mellon in 1996, although Jimmy has since sold his 50 per cent ownership in the firm to Tamara Mellon. Jimmy Choo, who is based in London, is currently working on a project to establish a shoemaking institute in Malaysia.
- Amber Chia
Amber Chia is a supermodel who is without a doubt the most famous in recent memory. She began modelling at the age of 17 and rose to international prominence in 2004 after winning the Guess Watches Timeless Beauty Contest. This contest sought models from all over the world with the goal of selecting a Guess Watches brand ambassador. Amber is not just the first Malaysian, but also the first Asian, to win the competition. Her victory in a professional modelling competition catapulted her into the fashion industry. The Malaysian International Fashion Awards recognised her Model of the Year in 2004 and 2005. She has now become a brand ambassador for companies such as L’Oreal and Sony. I Wanna Be a Model, her own modelling reality show, was even created by her.
- Nicholas Teo
He became famous not in Malaysia, but in Taiwan, another Asian country. Nicholas, who was 21 at the time, won the Astro Talent Quest competition in 2002. When he published his first album two years later, his career as a recording artist took off. The album was largely successful in Taiwan, where it sold 30,000 copies in the first month of its release, an achievement that equalled some of Taiwan’s more recognised artists.
