There is an Indian actoress who has gone to the USA to work and live. She says that she has gone there to tell white people that Indians are not ugly and do not stink. "I don't know whether she has gone there to clear their doubts or to make their belief firmer."


Please check.

"Actoress" isn't right. You've spelt it wrong.

Sorry.

There is an Indian actress who has gone to the USA to work and live. She says that she has gone there to tell white people that Indians are not ugly and do not stink. "I don't know whether she has gone there to clear their doubts or to make their belief firmer."

"I don't know whether she has gone there to clear their doubts or to make their belief firmer."

This isn't correct because you're implying she's intentionally going there in order to make their beliefs firmer. This contradicts the previous sentence. I'd say something like "She might be going there with the intention to clear their doubts, but she could inadvertently make them worse."
I think this is what you're trying to say, yes?

As an actor, wouldn't she be going there to show this rather than tell it, not that they need much or any telling or showing.

It sounds like a very selfless action - migrating to a country to show the people there that you don't smell. I hope she gets some personal fulfillment out of it. But maybe there's an ulterior motive.
