Unscramble the Blue Letters

I was asked last year to give a speech at the Oslo Freedom Forum. I was surrounded by this love and the support of people around me, and they looked at me as an inspiration. At the same time, I flew back to my home ctuonry, they hated that speech so much. The way they called it: a betrayal to the Saudi country and the suadi ploepe, and they even started a hashtag called #OsloTraitor on Twitter. Some 10,000 twtees were written in that hashtag, while the opposite hasathg, #OsloHero, there was like a handful of tweets written. They even started a poll. More than 13,000 voters answered this poll: whether they considered me a ttoairr or not after that scpeeh. Ninety percent said yes, she's a traitor. So it's these two totally different perceptions of my personality.
