I am joining with others to fight against such violence. How can love turn into such bitter action and cause such pain.

She strongly believes that her physical scarring has not at all affected her true personality. She believes she is still the same person inside with similar ability to do things and to cause change like any other normal person. She has demonstrated her commitment and dedication through providing emotional support to the victims of acid violence, increasing awareness raising, lobbying for collective efforts to fight this barbaric act through the media both nationally and internationally.
