I feel glad when I see people around me happy. I would say I am a happy soul especially after having experienced the darker side early in my life.” As we concluded the interview, Humaima advised our readers to stay positive and help each other. She also encouraged everyone to stand up against the wrong, especially cyberbullying. Being a victim herself, she emphasised that people have no right to make another feel bad or hurt them in any way. “Individuals who write such harsh comments and make a judgment on people’s lives just by sitting across the screen need to realise that the negative comments can have a huge impact on someone.” “Life is all about being generous, live and let live,” she concluded. 18
