"Like most parents, I worry about the times we live in. I know I’d like to delay her introduction to screentime, but when I do, it would be to familiarize her with good movies. I want her to fall in love with them. Because that imagination is something else."

Alia further added that while growing up, she was never a big reader, but she remembers watching The Lion King, which helped her creatively. She added that she wants her child to play outside as it is important. Alia added that she would try to give her as much as she can. She said:

"I was never a big reader, but I remember watching The Lion King and feeling so creatively stimulated. And of course, there is nothing like being outdoors for a child growing up, so I’ll try and give her that as much as I can."
