school. With her energetic presence and carefree nature, Layla is impossible to dislike. She has no specific life ambition
as yet, except to go to as many movies, shops and parties as possible.
Generally people are surprised to find a young, fun, adventurous girl like Layla placing such importance on her spiritual
beliefs. Layla grew up as part of the Baha’i religion. When Layla finds cause to express her views on the dysfunctional
elements of society, she bears testimony to her humanitarianism and strong moral core.
