Besides, when she finally was allowed to walk, she tried to join college and acting classes. But unfortunately, she had to stop learning due to her knee problems.

After a couple of unsuccessful tries, the actress managed to get a role after her health improved. Although she got the role, she was worried as she gained lots of weight due to lack of exercise.
