Outlined here is clarity, simplicity, commitment and sacrifice of an exemplary Malaysian, a Christian who seeks to fight with her deep faith, impeccable character and profound courage to secure, by God's strength and with much prayer, a better future for all Malaysians. There is great hope for Malaysia if many more Hannahs could be replicated in politics.
Dr. Daniel Ho Senior Pastor, DUMC, Petaling Jaya
Hannah's story is not only about politics. It is about a spiritual journey of self-discovery. It is also about the role of values and faith in public office. Hannah's Christian convictions show us how faith is a prime mover for righteousness, justice and good governance in the state and the nation. She truly believes that politics needs more good people if positive change is to happen, and because of her faith, has shown that she is willing to walk the talk.
