The kalaam is indeed beautiful and hits all the right chords in our hearts. The aspiring artist shared in an earlier interview that she often thinks she’s not doing enough to follow after her father. She shared, “I’m still finding myself and I hope there is a day when I’m just defined by my name, that’s what I’m craving.
