I am so proud of you… thank you for showing us how it’s done… you are an inspiration girl!! Living her best life, winning an Oscar for India on her 3 month anniversary… stuff fairytales are made of. I’ve seen your hustle, your passion, your drive and just sticking it out in an all boys club. All I can say is… that this is just the beginning (smiley face with hearts and dizzy symbol emojis).”
She added, “Oh and thank you for letting me touch and record these ridiculous videos with ‘Goldie’… now I’m just going to have to get my own so we can pose together (kissing face with heart, red heart and fire emojis).” In the video, Huma is wearing a black jacket with a yellow stripe, with a beige hat.
