Iram Gilani is a name you will remember. She was born & raised in Pakistan, where she encountered molestation, abuse, & misogyny from a shockingly young age. Never knowing a stable, safe environment she struggled with vulnerability& creating friendships when she moved to the US as a teenager. Despite her painful past, Iram was determined to achieve a college degree. 

Before she had the chance to complete her education, she was married off by her family. Before the final ceremony that would have solidified the unwanted marriage, her would-be husband disappeared, leaving her behind. Shortly after this, Iram was encouraged to return home to Pakistan for another arranged marriage. It was there that she became the victim of brutal gun violence. She was shot in the face, her lower jaw all but blown away in the attack. Miraculously, she survived, and the mysterious nature of the attack remains uncovered.
