Mumtaz was disowned by her family for pursuing her career.
She went on to become a successful artist and is now married and has two children. Mumtaz also devotes her time to supporting many organisations that help women who have fled domestic violence or forced marriage.
Mumtaz left home over ten years ago for cultural reasons and was surprised to find an organisation that does not label women as to why they leave but supports them once they do.
Through speaking with an advisor at Sharan, Mumtaz was able to open up about her own experiences for the first time.
