When Datin Nurul straps up her riding boots and gets on her saddle, she is on full athlete mode—focused, driven, and set on making the traditionally male-dominated sport of polo an even playing field. For her, polo comes from a place of passion, and stems from her love for horses. Using her skills to then make an impact in society, Datin Nurul actively seeks out philanthropic initiatives to empower women and children. “Last year, my boys and I helped design T-shirts with positive messages, and its proceeds went towards helping the plight of Syrian children. It was exciting to inspire our own children to look outside the box,” she says.
