"Find your peace. It's part of knowing yourself.  Work at it because it doesn't come like magic.  Don't be afraid to change, and don't be afraid to take the steps to change.  Be the one who defines who you are, even when the whole world wants to do that for you."

Born To Smile is Malaysia’s First Memoir About Life With A Cleft Lip and Palate Nora Tan Sri Abu Hassan spent her early years dealing with facial deformity, multiple surgeries,school bullies, tactless people, and enough emotional baggage to last a lifetime. Every day, she battled physical adversity with spiritual courage and went to achieve important life goals: university, a career in banking, running a successful business, becoming a wife, mother and recently, grandmother.

And yet, self-acceptance remained elusive. Born To Smile is written for everyone desperately wanting to overcome adversity and to understand what it takes to get past self-criticism and low self-esteem.

Nora Tan Sri Abu Hassan writes candidly about her birth detect, and the many trials and tribulations on her journey towards self-empowerment. Born To Smile is her story of personal courage, transformation and self-acceptance in the face of a world which challenged her to find her smile in the midst of her pain.

Nora Tan Sri Abu Hassan has given a talk on anti-bully at St Mary’s School Kuala Lumpur. She has been invited to talk on Born To Smile at Times, Pavilion.

Next sharing session is scheduled to be held at Times, Bangsar Shopping Centre.

She will continue to champion her crusade for anti-bully and empower those who have struggled with esteem and confidence issues due to the above.
