She spoke to Kosmo! about the incident, revealing that her father had just returned from Sultan Idris University in Tanjung Malim after taking her sister for a teaching job interview.

“My late father had diabetes and high blood pressure, and he may have been overly fatigued, leading to the heart attack,” she said.

Honor his legacy

Despite the sorrow of not sharing her triumph with her father, Siti Nor Charifa remains determined to honor his legacy.

“I will always remember my father’s teachings and strive to fulfill his wish for me to become a teacher and pursue a doctorate for greater achievements.”

“My father always believed that education is a noble profession that can enlighten and civilize people,” she added, highlighting his aspiration for all his children to pursue careers in education.

Although her father was often busy providing for the family, he always made time to visit her at the school dormitory.
