She started an illustrations page on Facebook called My Father Illustrations where she draws out some of the best advice that fathers have given their famous, illustrious daughters.

"I started this series because there is an urgent need to engage fathers, who are mostly the decision-makers in our families, to engage in dialogue to protect girl child rights and to amplify the voices of those fathers who are fearlessly fighting for their daughters and inspiring them to be good and do better," she told BuzzFeed.
