Usianya yang masih 20 tahun dan berhijab tak menghentikan langkahnya untuk mengikuti kontes Miss Universe New Zealand.
Nurul Shamsul diketahui berdarah Indonesia dari sang ibu yang asal Semarang dan ayah yang asal Selangor, Malaysia. Namun perempuan yang berkuliah di jurusan psikologi ini dibesarkan di New Zealand. Belakangan namanya jadi viral lantaran ia menjadi perempuan berhijab pertama yang mengikuti ajang Miss Universe!
Akun Instagram-nya pun penuh komentar berbahasa Melayu dan Indonesia, mereka kebanyakan mengirimkan dukungan untuknya.
Sehari-harinya Nurul memakai hijab yang terbilang sederhana. Modelnya pun tidak berubah dan tidak terlalu banyak modifikasi. Namun ia tetap terlihat manis dan menarik apalagi ketika tersenyum.
Nurul juga membagikan bagaimana bentuk 'swimsuit' yang ia kenakan jika berada di ajang Miss Universe. Tetapi peragaan baju renang sebenarnya sudah ditiadakan dalam acara Miss Universe New Zealand. Nah, berikut ini beberapa gaya Nurul yang bisa kamu jadikan contekan juga untuk penampilan sehari-hari!

My 👙 for Miss Universe New Zealand. 🤷🏻♀️ Although I wear the hijab, people still keep asking me if I will wear the bikini for Miss Universe New Zealand. I believe that integrity is one of the most admirable trait that someone can have so I will never do anything that goes against my values or morals. Yes there is still a ‘swim suit’ section but Miss Universe New Zealand has took it out of the live show six years ago and instead does a calendar shoot during our Retreat. Nonetheless, when I was in Thailand for the Miss Universe New Zealand retreat, I woke up and a reporter from Newshub TV3 was messaging me, I was literally still in bed and they had asked to interview me in ten minutes. I don’t know how I did it, but I managed to compose myself within that short amount of time. And although I was on the Newshub 6pm news, the video of my calendar shoot you saw of me on the beach was literally taken at 5pm and was sent at 6pm. I would like to thank the organisers for always being respectful of my faith. Not only do they provide an alternative modest option during photoshoots, they also had halal food for me to eat during the Retreat. This really warms my heart and I really do appreciate all the hard work that they do for the contestants and I. Miss Universe New Zealand has been an empowering and enriching experience and ever since Stiletto camp, I’ve been grateful to be a part of it. 💖 #missuniversenewzealand #missuniverse
