For my brothers it was easy to think about the future. They can be anything they want. But for me it was hard and for that reason I wanted to become educated and empower myself with knowledge.
When I was born, some of our relatives came to our house and told my mother, ‘Don’t worry, next time you will have a son.’
When I was young I used to listen to other people and to try and understand what they thought and where they were coming from. I listened and didn’t speak.

I enjoy science, and I’m a very curious person. I always want to know the reason behind everything, big or small.

Dear sisters and brothers, I am not against anyone.
