Extract from The Star Online article titled More Than Beautiful campaign: Redefining true beauty

An interview with Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir

What does the More Than Beautiful campaign mean to you?

This campaign really gives us a chance to talk to young women on what it means to try and achieve your full potential as a human being. Looking good is only an add-on to being a fully developed human being which is someone who is aware of what’s going on around her, believes that she has something to contribute to the world on an equal basis with everyone else.

What makes a woman beautiful?

Same thing that makes a man beautiful: kindness.

Who are your role models?

My role models include my mum who is sweet and kind but also strong and firm, the many people with HIV that I have come to know who continue to work for the good of everyone despite having to live with the virus. And, of course the other three women in this campaign who are both my friends and my heroes.

What message do you want to send about being more than beautiful?

Beauty is a matter of luck and genes and you can’t do anything about it. But you can be a great person, a worthy human being, regardless of the genetic cards you were dealt. Be educated, be aware, be passionate and be caring!


Inspiring! Good job The Body Shop.
