Do You - PUMA South East Asia Ambassadors

In conjunction with the global PUMA launch of the ‘DO YOU’ Campaign, PUMA South East Asia announces the regional line up of representatives of the brand. This campaign aims to inspire confidence and identity in women, and to bolster the essence of the global campaign to young women on a more personal level.

The PUMA Ambassador is one who is dauntless in the face of adversities and unapologetic for being who they are. These are attributes and characteristics exemplified by influential women who stay true to themselves, make their own rules, and never take ‘no’ for an answer, like Rihanna and Cara Delevingne, whom are all PUMA Female Ambassadors.

Let's get to know the awesome ladies who are PUMA South East Asia Ambassadors!

Sheila does yoga regularly but has an avid interest in rock-climbing, hiking, swimming, cycling, and rollerblading.
Sheila draws her motivation from Iris Apfel, a trendsetter who is not afraid to be herself, even at the age of 95, and she is determined to drive the strong message of being comfortable in your own skin.
“To DO YOU means to understand who you truly are. Because everything starts from within. It is important to embrace all of you; the good and the bad.

In her free time, Siti enjoys travelling, reading and cooking while making time for the gym and loves to engage in badminton on the weekends with her family.
