Guldiyar takes pride in her Uyghur identity, and whenever she has the opportunity, introduces the Uyghur people and culture to those around her. She tries to set a good example for young girls that may follow her and watch her content, and thanks them all for their support.

Her future plan is to pursue a Master’s degree, exploring the Uyghur, Chaghatai Uyghur, and modern Uyghur languages. Her main source of inspiration and motivation in her studies and career is her Uyghur identity, and the thought of a free East Turkestan.
Good luck in your studies, Guldiyar!
