1. She's a doting sister
Madam Sheena’s younger sister, 27-year-old teacher Madam Sabreena Akbal, said that her fondest memory was of her older sister dropping everything to meet her when she was upset.
“Even though she was busy, she got me flowers, sat me down and really helped me through it.”
2. She's opinionated but diplomatic
“If she doesn’t like something she will tell you. But she is very kind, generous and giving,” said Madam Sabreena.
Their mother, Madam Hamidah Mustaffa, 57, echoed that opinion, calling her firstborn “firm but soft-hearted”.
3. No prizes for guessing who her favourite celebrity is...
“She has many... but she’s Taufik’s number one fan,” said her younger sister.
4. She has hoop dreams
Madam Sheena harbours a love for the dribble-and-dunk of basketball.
She has online interests too, preferring photo-sharing platform Pinterest.
Food is also a passion.
5. Not surprisingly, Taufik fits her ideal profile
“Tall, dark and handsome... is he her type? Definitely!,” said Madam Sabreena, laughing.
