Afia is adventurous and straight to the point, doesn't sugar-coat the truth, and doesn't follow everyone else. Life is too short to just be part of the crowd and she wants to stand out!

The closest person she has is her father, Yusef, after losing her mother at a young age.

She knows what she wants and cunningly knows how to get it, which she proved by bagging the Square's local nerd Tamwar Masood. But can they live happily ever after with the past that lies between both their families?

On the 4th April 2011 Afia married Tamwar Masood in a secret Ceromany.

Afia knew what she wanted - and how to get it. Which is how she and Tamwar got together. And ultimately how their marriage fell apart.

If Afia had been the shy and retiring type, she'd still be waiting for Tamwar to make a move. They married in secret, then had a second traditional family wedding.

But outside forces rocked their relationship. Her father Yusef drove a wedge through Tamwar's family, and nearly destroyed his mother. Yusef died in a fire, in which Tamwar received serious burns.

Tamwar and Afia's relationship never quite recovered. Ultimately, they realised that they wanted different things from life - Afia left on her moped for travel and adventure, Tamwar stayed at home with his mum.
