Her personal experience of losing her father at the early age of 6, and being raised by her mother, in a male chauvinistic society where the rights of women were stifled further fueled her passion to see a world where young girls could strive beyond patriarchal lines.

That better explains her second world - that of volunteerism and humanitarian works.
