EXCLUSIVE: Nurul Izzah speaks to R.AGE about reforming Malaysia

Those connections could have come in handy for a plum position in the new government, and she most definitely would have been a popular pick. But speaking to her in person, with all her idealism and charisma, you'd know she wouldn't let something like a title (or lack thereof) get in the way her from her role as a proud reformist.
