Thank you dear Karen! It took me 9 years to become what I am today. I was an ordinary girl from a middle class family in Pakistan. I have worked day and night. Some days I studied in street lights, some days I traveled on the door of the public bus, I was jobless for 2.5 years but God is great now I have strength and still long way to go.
