Fatima Yusuf

Fatima Yusuf battled OCD since the age of 13. It took a decade and gettng to the brink of obsessive hand washing to realise that she can take charge of the situation. She found that her reactions to the surrounding environment is within her control. She observed how ‘normal’ people lived and copied their atttudes. She learnt to respect herself and ignore social stigma. Her talents resurfaced and manifested themselves in surprising ways. Her faith increased, as did her willpower. It was not an easy journey. Yes, there are problems, but deep down in her heart, she firmly believes that inner peace is every person’s birthright.
