New Face 2014: Aisyah

Aisyah Salleh may seem quiet, but she's really just observing.

"I like to hear people's take on certain issues and if I'm comfortable enough, I voice my thoughts as well.

"A debate is always fun to have during coffee sessions," she said.

But that doesn't mean she's a passive observer. She also wants some action.

One of Aisyah's dreams is to get a motorbike licence and ride a dirt bike.

The 22-year-old came close but admits to "chickening out" during her practical lessons.

She said: "I tried to get a licence, but kept falling in the course, so I feared for my life. And one of my aunties also passed away in a bike accident.

"But I'm planning to continue in a few months. It would make it easier to travel for work and school, since I live in the east and work and study in the west."

She also wants to get a diving licence.

"I went diving at Sentosa once and the experience was beyond words. I touched a shark."

This year marks The New Paper New Face's 22nd anniversary.
