The BBC said that Arzu had a word of advice for young people.

“Walk the Straight and Narrow Path, Honor your father and mother, Listen to adults in society; not only listen to them but also ask questions so that you can follow the path that you see as an example to create a better society,” says Arzu said the BCC.
