Niessa (Malaysia)

Niessa, age 23, Student

“This is a Man’s World”

Niessa studies maritime engineering where almost all her peers are boys. And that’s the problem. At her university, the male students judge any girl who tries to make herself look even slightly attractive, or dares to look like anything other than a standard “stereotypical engineering student”.

Niessa’s determined to succeed and would like to look attractive but she fears being ostracised the way she’s seen other girls go down… She wants to be accepted, respected and liked, so she dresses as a “slobby girl” to fit in.

Niessa needs to overcome her fears about judgement. She needs help to style herself in a way where she can embrace her right to look good as a young, attractive woman and still be respected in a male dominated sector.
