With a great sense of justice and faith in God, Hannah Yeoh beat a path into a political career that spans over 10 years inspiring the young to follow her. As one of the most watched young politicians this newly appointed Malaysia’s Deputy Minister Women, Children and Community forges on to blaze a trail towards implementing reforms.
If you follow Hannah Yeoh on her Facebook you will find that she is equally committed to her family as she is to her constituents of Segambut .
She shares her two daughters’ antics with relish and advocates balanced career and family life. “Family time has to be intentional otherwise it’s only about filling up our schedule. Empty slots on your schedule will not always be empty if you don’t intentionally make it empty.
“And so for a working mother, I believe for anyone who’s working, your empty slot is your rest time and for me it’s not just about me resting but I need to spend time with them (two daughters) so I have to create that empty slot for them,” said Hannah.
Since the beginning of her career in politics, as the youngest and first woman speaker in the country, Hannah has ensured that she did not sacrifice time with her family. And this was how she served the her constituents in Subang Jaya for 10 years as twice elected state assemblyman.
