You appear to be a very strong woman on the outside – Can you tell us what you are like on the inside?
First of all, I am a woman and a wife. I strongly believe that women must submit to her husband, while the husband must appreciate this and in return love their wives sincerely.
Inside me, I am a supportive person, with an assertive and strong personality. I believe that a women’s role is to support her husband, to help him win and in return you both will succeed. My family is run like an army, where my husband is the General and I am the Major. He makes general decisions and I make all the major ones.
