Who Is Hannah Yeoh, Deputy Women, Community and Family Development Minister?
If you’ve been following the elections and all its exciting developments, then you must have heard of Hannah Yeoh. She’s certainly been one of the stars of GE14, with her enthusiastic speeches and approachable demeanour.
Recently sworn in as Deputy Women, Community and Family Development Minster, Hannah’s is not a new name to the Malaysian political scene. She’s definitely been on a roller coaster ride since joining politics for her being an outspoken woman in her field who has broken barriers.
This is the life of Hannah Yeoh:
Bachelor of Laws And Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice
Are all politicians lawyers? Yeoh is a 2003 graduate from the University of Tasmania, Australia. She completed her third and final year in 2000 in UTAS and, after graduating, returned to Malaysia to complete her chambering years at Soo Thien Ming & Nasrah Lawyers in Kuala Lumpur. However, Yeoh returned to Tasmania in 2003 to complete the UTAS Certificate of Professional Legal Practice.
I really enjoyed the high standard of education on offer at UTAS and found the highly-qualified lecturers at the Faculty of Law to be very approachable. The additional classes offered to overseas students as part of the International Students Support Program (ISSP) were also very helpful.
