“I’ve completely blocked out the bad side of social media. If you see my timeline, I mostly use it to share positive news and useful information, and I think you need to build an algorithm around that because that’s the power it holds. You follow people who’re not toxic, you’re listening, seeing, reading news that’s uplifting and motivating,” she shares.

But there’s completely little doubt that @mybmc shifting to instantly conduct a demolition of areas of her workplace house is completely questionable. Why now? Why like this?

“That’s not to say that you’ve to turn a blind eye or mute out the terrible things that are happening. It’s important to stay aware, too. I honestly feel that if I’ve nothing constructive to contribute to a narrative, I’d rather remain silent about it,” Mirza explains.
