Sohaila lives at a refugee camp since her family fled their village following the attack by the ISIS in 2016. She is from indigenous inhabitants of Nuristan, a place located in Himalayan Mountains with impassible roads. The inhabitants who are believed to be remnants of Greek soldiers of Alexander were forcibly converted from an animist religion to Islam. Sohaila was raised by her aunt who live together in the camp and make their living from carpet waving.
