Describing her journey through life and how she has managed her very challenging career she says: "Sometimes deevs show up and sometimes little angels. I think my own life has closely resembled Rostam's Seven Quests (haft khaan-e Rostam). On the first few quests, you are involved with daily life, money, politics, family, and everyday things. Sometimes you face negative events and bad feelings. You will have to face social, religious, cultural, and family issues, mostly external quests."
