Original: «I've challenged all systems - the family, I never obeyed my father properly. I always did what I wanted to do. In school I challenged. In the streets, I challenged the monopoly of what the boys thought that girls couldn't participate in. I've spent a lifetime in challenge. There's no way in which you can create any meaningful change unless you do that».
