Alicia Amin has been honoured as one of “Asia’s Most Stylish” by Tatler Malaysia. She posted the exciting news on her Twitter page this week.
The model-turned-actress uploaded two breathtaking shots of her cover spread from Tatler magazine. According to Alicia, this photo shoot with the publication was a meaningful one for her.
In the post, the 25-year-old recalled, “8 years ago the first time I moved out of my room, which was only RM500 per month and I couldn’t afford it. When I was in Australia I had to work 2 jobs but didn’t have enough money to finish my education. 4 years ago when I came back to Malaysia, I tried to off myself.”
Alicia continued in another thread, “And while along the way, some people and some brands had something to say about working with someone with mental illness – All my hard work supported by the chances people were willing to take on me in 10 years of modelling got me here. Yo, I’m depressed but I’m on Tatler baby!”
Our heartiest congratulations goes to you, Alicia! Kudos for staying true to yourself despite the setbacks and challenges that you’ve encountered in the past.
