Nousheen Rasheed | 10 years ago | Reply Whoa that was an impressive piece of writing! The language undoubtedly delivers the essence in which it has been written. Applaud to the writer and I wish you would bring in more issues from even the underprivileged areas since not many girls there get a voice of their own to share with the world because most can't even write with those many spell mistakes!! A great take!! Keep up the work!
