Siti is the most respective artist in the Malaysian music industry that still amazes her audience till now. Siti Nurhaliza full name was Siti Nurhaliza binti Taruddin. Siti was educated at the Clifford Primary School, Kuala Lipis and pursue her study at secondary school till form five at Clifford High School, Kuala Lipis. This essay is about the life of an idol that inspires me.

Siti Nurhaliza was born at police barracks in Kg. Awah, Temerloh, Pahang on 11 January 1979. Her father name is Tarudin bin Ismail while her mother name is Siti Salmah Bachik. Siti’s father works as a policeman at the police station while his mother works as a housewife. Siti Nurhaliza has eight siblings and she is the fifth. Siti’s mother was a traditional local musician while her grandfather was a violinist. She starts karaoke at home then her family supports her to sing at wedding ceremony with Family Group, a band that was owned by her family.

Siti won many singing competition before she finally signed a contract with a local company which is Suria Record Company (SRC). Before she signed a contract with SRC she win her first national singing competition, Bintang HMI 1995 and there she met Adnan Abu Hassan a director of SRC. As a new singer she had to face many obstacles such as balancing her life between career and education. She also doesn’t want to take a picture with any male as she wants to avoid controversy. This personality was a good example for the teenagers nowadays.

As Siti began to capture people attention, she began to receive a lot of criticism from the critic. They critic’s about her lack of style when she was at any awards or concerts. Siti was from the country side so she doesn’t know how to wear something that up to date. Knowing her own lack of style drew negative comments from the critics, she began initiative to improve her image. After a while she finally knows how to dress up and fascinate everyone eyes.

As for conclusion, I admired her because she had face so much hardship but she manages to overcome each obstacle well. She was Malaysian jewels that beloved by all her fans.
