Favorite book I must say, Alchemist.

The three qualities that got you where you are today?

Faith in Allah, consistency, and getting up whenever I fall.

Happiness is…

For me, happiness is not one thing. A person can not specify happiness with one thing or else life would be so difficult. Happiness for me is music, acting, spending time with my family, sitting on the balcony and sipping tea, having a fun chat with my younger brother, and a lot more. Happiness for me is every little thing.

Telepathy is the superpower I would like to have.
