She said, “Acting has always been a passion of mine. It is a way for me to unleash my creativity, as well as embrace my versatile and unorthodox nature. Acting has become a way of life for me, because it allows me to fully express myself and explore different characters and emotions. I have been acting for most of my life.”

The actress added that instead of being weighed down by challenges, she actually learnt from them. She said, “For me, every lesson is a valuable experience that helps me excel in my craft. Each opportunity to learn and grow brings me closer to becoming the best version of myself as an actress. I embrace every lesson with enthusiasm and use it to fuel my passion for acting.
