Ayan explained what happened to her following her circumcision.

We were tied in the legs. We could not pee. We couldnt walk. When we needed to pee, the staff would carry us and place us on the grass. I just didnt understand what the hell was going on, and my mother didnt know that it was happening to us.

She continued to state that she needed surgery to correct what had been done to her.

I couldn't have sex. And then I had to wait until I healed,' she explained.

After the episode went viral, Ayan took to Twitter to express her thoughts on speaking out against female genital mutilation (FGM).

I am a survivor of #FGM, and I felt so betrayed by my culture by this horrible practice of #childabuse #endFGM, according to a writer.

Im no longer a victim and I want to fight against #endFGM, according to a subsequent tweet.
