She is also very supportive of women's rights and tries always to remind other women how powerful they are as she stated in her interview with Global Grind, "I come from a family of women. Women are very powerful! That’s why I believe in women’s rights and why I fight for it. The rights are there in the laws, but the mentality can still be too conservative. It has to improve."
