Dearest Meesha Shafi and Maria Unera;

Ever since I heard about Behenchara allowing us to write in letters, I have thought about you two. Not only have both of you inspired me constantly by being an amazing, independent, and fiercely empowered woman, but you have personally supported me even when you didn’t know who I was.

I can never thank you enough for listening to my story when I had no name when you had no way of verifying if I was telling the truth. I can never thank you enough for offering to stand by me in private and in public. I had heard of your strength and warmth but to experience it being given so openly and lovingly was life-changing for me. Thank you so much.

I will never be able to repay your kindness at that time. I hope you are both doing well and that if I ever meet you either of you (again) I can thank you in person for your help.

Amal Awais Chughtai.
