VJ Hanli

At first glance, MTV VJ Hanli may seem reserved, but don't let that impression fool you for a second. This dark-haired beauty has a streak of spontaneity and is up for anything that sounds fun. In fact, it was her penchant for trying out new things that landed her the coveted role as MTV's VJ in January 2013. When she learned of MTV's search for a new host, Hanli decided on the spur of the moment to audition and quickly caught the attention of the producers with her winning smile and easy grace.

Besides hosting and modelling for a number of brands, Hanli has been co-hosting one of the biggest Southeast Asian music nights of the year, MTV World Stage Malaysia, which attracted nearly 20,000 fans in 2015. She co-hosted the first and second editions of MTV Music Evolution Manila which showcased iconic and contemporary international, regional and local artists on a single stage. The 2016 live event drew over 26,000 fans. These shows are recorded live for global telecast under the MTV World Stage global series to an international audience of more than three-quarters of a billion households in over 160 countries.

Hanli was born and raised in Singapore. When she is not hosting shows for MTV, hitting the runways or gracing magazine covers, she enjoys yoga, working out, watching documentaries, travelling, playing with animals and exploring all sorts of eateries and cafés. Her music playlist features a diverse mix of genres from old school classics, retro pop, deep house, jazz, chart toppers, and good old R&B.

Hanli studied English, Art and Psychology in United World College and graduated with an International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. She first burst onto the scene as a model when she was 19 years old. Less than a year after her debut, she notched a number of high profile gigs including the cover shots on Her World and Shape magazines. On top of being featured in a number of publications, she is an ambassador for L'Officiel and has been in cover stories in Seventeen, NYLON, and RØMP.
