" Growing up as a child one of those things that really matters to me is how I will be a woman of value, how I will make others especially females to see how valuable they are and how much their contributions count and how they can choose to live their lives as they want and to be successful in their various positions in life. I am of idea that females are not an objects to be used; rather individuals responsibility to make them capable of contributing to the development of the world. I challenge myself to become better, stronger to join hands with those who are in support of this change and to Sensitize those who are yet to and I believe with this we will achieve a sustainab le nation. Being a Millennium Fellow and having acquired a strong interpersonal communication skill will enable me to be active and enhance productivity and be of global relevance. And also it will enable me to work with different ethnic groups across the globe. "
