Anja deserves a big pat on the back


SHAH ALAM: Anja Juliah Abu Bakar has faced failures and setbacks. Her experiences inspired her to set up Blubear Holdings – a social enterprise selling eco-friendly, reusable sanitary products, which ploughs over half its profits into programmes teaching life skills to girls aged nine to 17.

“Empowering girls is so important to me because I also dropped out from college in the 1990s,” said the social impact director of Blubear, who is one of the 10 winners of the Star Golden Hearts Award this year. “I realised I was not good in academics.”
