She said she had not expected to be honoured in such a way and was very excited.
“I am so happy. I am excited and I can’t wait for the day. This is one of the best moments in my life. I am going to break down and cry because I never thought I am worth that. It’s something that I never expected. It’s way above my expectations. I don’t even know what to say at the moment,” she said.
“I got this a couple of days ago, since then I have not been sleeping. This is one of the best moments in my life.”
This has come at a time during the month women commemorate the International Women’s Day and the International Women’s Heritage Day.
