A video of a brave Yemenite girl who ran away from an arranged marriage has gone viral. 11-year-old Nada Al-Ahdal ran away from her parents to her uncle’s house, escaping a nightmare that would end her childhood and freedom. Her sheer honesty in the video has even caught the attention of actor, Ian Somerhalder, who shared the link and tweeted:

“SO BRAVE!!!This kid,or should I say young lady,represents women all
over the globe-be strong,safe&free.check this out.”
