A story to tell...
By Tuan Zubaidah Tuan Muda
from Kuala Lumpur Malaysia
I came from a big family of ten siblings during the colonial times. My father was a man of great discipline, honor and integrity working as a Government servant. He instilled in me the principles of life: To be educated, independent and pursue the dreams no matter how late it is. My mother was a woman of leisure and very loving.
I was a playful kid when I was young. I did not go to the university immediately after high school for I chose to get married at the age of 20. After giving birth to my first child I lived in the United States for three and a half years and worked in a teaching hospital in Florida when my ex-husband was pursuing his undergraduate and post graduate studies in the university. I returned to Malaysia and had my second, third and fourth child.
The turning point of my life was after I had my third child, when I attended my youngest sister's graduation. I saw my sister on the stage receiving her degree. She became a source of inspiration and I felt that I had to achieve something in my life. From then on I had faith in myself, pursued legal studies and there was no turning back.

The moment I achieved my freedom I felt the burden on my shoulder was lifted. I love my life and live to the fullest. I have seven grandchildren. My eldest grand child is 12 years old and the youngest is one week old.
