Not going to lie, but I was sceptic if I should open up about my surgery at the beginning, but then I realised this is what I stand for which is speaking up about the problems and struggles women go through. I actually opened up about a very common but yet unspoken problem, which happens across many women, which is Uterine Fibroids. Honestly, this was extremely personal but all the while I am happy that I spread awareness about this and trust me so many girls and women wrote to me and appreciated that I highlighted such a sensitive yet very crucial topic."

To this, she replied, "Ever since I was growing up I saw that in every society of this world there is a huge gap between the masculine and the feminine. Very few actually spoke about the struggles that women face on a daily basis because most of those topics are considered taboo. Even girls themselves think it's forbidden to talk about it. So I firmly believe it's really important to address the problem that women go through and that is where I felt it’s important to talk about it online and take a stand. That is where this whole vision of inspiring girls came from.".
