CHILDHOOD 

Natasha Noel had been a victim of sexual abuse. At the age of 3 and a half, her mother burnt herself in front of Natasha and somewhere she blamed herself. After this, she was fighting to come out of her mother's death. Her dad was suffering from schizophrenia, so he was unable to take care of Natasha. Her childhood was sowed with insecurities and delinquency. She was being taken care of by her Paternal aunt who was Natasha's guardians. Though her godparents tried taking care, she still was unhappy with her life. At the age of 7, she was raped. She was even suggested to marry the rapist, but Natasha couldn't comprehend anything. And she was told ''no one will ever love her or marry her except him''. Then from the age of 8 to 14, she was sexually assaulted by her cousins. She started self-loathing and she felt responsible for her miserable life.

HOW PAIN CAN CHANGE YOU-

Natasha's godparents noticed that she wasn't doing well and took her to a psychiatrist. And her doctor asked Natasha to draw and that is when she realized art is the hope of light. By the age of 16, she was the professional dancer and through dance, she started expressing her emotions. After some time she met with an accident and her meniscus and corneal muscle tore. She was advised to leave the dance. For the second time, she went to depression and felt a void. She completed her graduation in English literature. Natasha started working at the age of 17 as a professional photographer. Perhaps during that time, her love life ended which left her to feel devastated. That made her over-eat and puke the food.
