Even though the family is not economically sound, Shaikh Mohammad Hamza says that he always gave equal opportunities to his daughters.

Hamza, who drives an autorickshaw to run a family of four, is ready to make every effort to realise his daughter's dream to study medicine. He told TOI:

I nurture a family of four and will do all that I can to educate my daughter and fulfil her dream of becoming a doctor. We’ve never differentiated between a girl or a male child and I will be the proudest if my daughters study and become independent. I am trying to arrange for financial assistance so that Aafreen can pursue a career of her choice.

Good luck, Aafreen!
