New Face 2014: Farhana Mazlan

Farhana Mazlan, 18, is a planner.

"I've always liked planning events, even small birthday parties or gatherings," she said.

She is studying events management at Republic Polytechnic in the hope of a career eventually in event planning, specifically weddings.

"Weddings are very festive and meaningful. Instead of planning a very traditional wedding, I want to add a lot of creative elements," she said.

For her own special day, she wants to hold it at the beach.

She said: "I'm not a fan of halls or hotels, and I only want to get married once so it has to be memorable."

Equally memorable is the process of her massive weight loss.

At 12, Farhana weighed a hefty 90kg.

In primary and lower secondary school, she had trouble passing her National Physical Fitness Award tests.

By 14, she managed to lower her weight to her current 54kg.

She maintains her weight by jogging and avoiding sugary fizzy drinks.

"I am proud of myself for losing weight the right way - the healthy way and the hard way," she said.
