Hussainy in one sentence – Mezhgan is a true lady and an inspirational individual.


Every day I thank my parents for leaving Afghanistan because God knows what would have happened to us if we stayed there.

The thing I like best about my job is all the people I meet and the way they feel after I do their makeup.

I try to do everything I can to help children and women in Afghanistan.

Anything can be done right with moderation and within the limits. 

Interesting Facts:
