Brutal Behaviour of police and people provoke her and inspired her to become a Lawyer. The vicious behaviour of police with her and the transgender community aggravated her to take up the profession of law to defend her class.
In an interview with the Independent Urdu,
“The abusive behaviour of police intimidated me when I used to beg on the roads of Karachi. Then my teacher advised me to overcome my fears by becoming a lawyer. I still remember the words of my mentor, “police will be afraid of you Nisha, once you become a lawyer”
Law Degree wasn’t a Piece of Cake
“I attained my Law degree from Karachi’s Sindh Muslim Law College in 2018 and obtained a notch in International affairs. I made good friends on my varsity. I am honoured to have humble and cooperative lawyers at the city court. I am thankful for their support and guidance. So far, I have brawled 50 cases. I hail from Lahore but fled to Karachi to start my life from a scratch. I want to forget the physical abuse I get from my family after my matriculation. I never forget the endless ordeal of my life’s harshest scuffle, when my days passed in begging and nights for studying.”

God has a different plan for Nisha
“God had made me different. I felt dejected at first but motivated with positive thoughts. I convinced myself that I am blessed with an intelligent mind and beautiful hands, feet, and eyes. I induced myself to do something big in my life but unfortunately, my family did not support me at that time.”
