Sokhina married young and raised her son as a single mom when her husband left the family. She is proud to now raise her voice on social and political issues through her work as a BRAC Popular Theater actress. Popular Theater groups do community based performances focused on raising awareness on a variety of issues that affect the rural poor, especially women, in Bangladesh. The plays are based on local incidents and take into account local culture and social norms. BRAC uses local actors who deliver their performances in the local dialect. In recent years she has observed significant changes regarding the treatment and perception of women in communities where the theater is being performed. Through the stipend BRAC pays her, Sokhina is able to support herself. She enjoys living with her son's family and dreams that her granddaughter will grow up in a more gender-sensitive Bangladesh.
