This SPM Top Scorer Was Criticised For Wearing Makeup

"She should be well recognised than criticised, what’s wrong with the society nowadays?"

  • This is Natasha Qisty Mohd Ridzuan. She's an SPM top scorer.

    • The bright student obtained straight-A+ in the 2016 Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination for nine subjects including Additional Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

      The Selangor-born who was studying at Tunku Kurshiah College (TKC) in Negeri Sembilan, was the star when the SPM results announcement was made last Thursday, 16 March.

  • In a surprising turn of events, not only did Natasha become the centre of attention for her academic achievements but also for her looks

    • All eyes were on the 18-year-old after state news agency Bernama uploaded a video of a media interview with her on Facebook.

      The video quickly went viral, with many commenting on her looks that is said to bear a striking resemblance to popular local actress Neelofa.

      Quite a number of Malaysians have quickly condemned her for putting on "thick" makeup while others chastised her for purportedly speaking English with a foreign accent.

      Some even trivialise her academic achievements and said that her results "will not bring her anywhere but maybe she could rely on her looks".

  • However, many more Malaysians have come to the defence of Natasha since then

    • They slammed the "critics and lawyers" on social media who were very hasty to pass judgment and offer comments that belittle Natasha instead of celebrating her excellence in her studies.

  • Do you think Natasha's appearance should be an issue here? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

  • SAYS would like to congratulate Natasha and all #SPM2016 candidates who did their best in the examinations! :)

  • These Malaysians shared about how life is for them after SPM:
