Norli Binte Ismail 

Formerly in sales, Norli believes in helping others in their time of need. Her heart especially for the younger generation is captured in her volunteering her time with non-profit organisation and community work. Having had a difficult childhood (due to the early death of her mother), Norli struggled with issues of self-esteem, which caused her to experience multiple cycles of drug addiction, offences and subsequent release from corrective facilities. Today she lives drug-free and lives everyday to exemplify to her children what it means to live life to the full.

A strong believer in giving back to her community, her advocacy spirit has led her to share her story to a wide range of audiences from schools to corporate events with the organisation “Beautiful People”. Norli is also a Community Leader of "Women of Courage Asia" a women empowerment platform. She has shared her story in the book “From Stereotypes to Archetypes” published in 2018 by Architects of Life. Her story has captured the attention of local and regional news outlets such as Singapore’s Lianhe Zaobao, Berita Harian and the China Press in Malaysia. A family woman, Norli prioritises time with her children and childhood friends with their families. Her dream is to help mothers in the drug rehabilitation centres triumph over their drug addictions so that once again, they can embrace motherhood.
