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:

Married the Love of Her Life with whom she has Two Adorable Daughters

In January of 2007, a close pastor-friend told her that she would be receiving a marriage proposal sometime in June. Yeoh laughed it off as even in May, there were no signs of a love interest.

However, she found the “love of her life” while she was preaching in church on (you guessed it, June 2007). Ramachandran Muniandy, an IT engineer, who was also sat at the congregation, instantly fell for her as he said God had been giving him visions of his future wife preaching in church for the last few months.

Kinda sounds like something you read in a novel (hello, Nicholas Sparks!)

Ramachandran proposed that same month and in January 2018, the lovebirds tied the knot. She also mothered two beautiful girls; Shay Adora Ram and Kayleigh Imani Ram.
