2. He's Part Iban And Proud Of It
Henry’s mother is of Iban ancestry and he’s extremely proud to be representing Malaysia.

3. He's Done The Iban Rite Of Passage
In 2016, Henry took part in a two-month long Iban rite of passage. The journey was documented on the Discovery Channel’s Surviving Borneo TV series.
Throughout the journey, Henry was guided by his Iban uncle and learned how to hunt for food, built shelters and how to survive best in the wild.
After his journey of self-discovery ended, Henry received a traditional Iban hand-tapped tattoo that’s believed to bring good luck and protect him from spirits.
