Nissa was born with 3 illnesses. She was born with chronic Bilateral Congenital Glaucoma, an eye disease which had caused her left eye to be blind since birth and her right eye is currently only about 5% strong. She was also born with Spina Bifida – a backbone defect with a tumour (benign) right at her spinal cord. On top of those conditions, she also has a weak pair of lungs.

Nissa never perceived her disabilities as limitations nor a hindrance, rather, sees her uniqueness as tools for her to acquire a different set of skills and abilities. She joined Shell Malaysia as a Shell Graduate trainee and is now the Performance Excellence Advisor for HSSE in Upstream. She may face certain obstacles, but this has not stopped this courageous and optimistic woman from living her life to the fullest and enjoying what life has to offer.
