Hilyah does not let her shyness get in the way of her ambitions

Taiping-born model Hilyah Amirah, 26, is now a resident in Cheras.

The accounting graduate said she had been modelling for two years now and had appeared in a number of magazines.

Speaking about the F1, she said this would be her third year as a Formula 1 Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix grid girl.

“I enjoy this event as it is a good platform to gain new contacts,” she said.

When not modelling, she can be seen acting in Malay dramas.

“I have acted in a few local Malay dramas such as Sebenarnya Saya Isteri Dia and Telemovie Homestay Maya,” she said.

Hilyah said she enjoyed acting as it allowed her to be a different person.

When not busy modelling and acting, she usually has her head buried in books.

She calls herself an introvert who enjoys a small group of friends rather than a big group of acquaintances.

“I am a shy person and one can usually find me in a corner with my novels,” she said, adding that it took her sometime to cosy up to new people.

In the future, she hopes to venture into the broadcasting world.
