Mona Zaki: "I made a soap ad to buy a new mobile!"

Mona Zaki admitted that her remuneration for the work she provides does not cover her high personal expenses, and she said about the reason for submitting the advertisement: "Because I need money, you will not believe that I am still taking my money from Mama until now, and then I always travel abroad."

And she continued, "The catastrophe is that the mobile device fell and was completely destroyed, and his bill came with five thousand pounds, and I am not a window star, and my work for the few work I participated in does not cover my expenses as a girl who lives simply, and as a student at the Faculty of Information, I had no choice but to make this advertisement."

Mona Zaki added: "I do not find anything wrong with this, as I announced a new product that everyone uses, and I am not the first to participate in an advertisement, as dozens of people have preceded me to work in this field outside and inside Egypt."
