Profile Information

Chapter One

Fight to learn and Race to continue

Seriously? your dad will allow you secretly? But how?

It was not that easy. My brothers ignored me, and my mother sniggered. I wondered why? Well, now I know. I was Pashtun and it was cultural thing for us to not study as a woman. Our relatives considered it a shame for females to learn. They thought education will made girls disgrace to their families. 

Fortunately, my father was not one of them. He knew my dreams so finally he allowed me to study in public school that were controlled by Hamid Karzai administration. Wait, we had a deal. I must hiddenly study from my brothers and my relatives. Well, the biggest tribble I mean my mother were also controlled by my father.

During first three months everything were normal but suddenly my brothers found out that I am going to school. They decide to punish me, but on the same day I got first degree in my class and a woman from ISAF gave me 50 dollars, bag for books, three buckets of oil and two cartons of biscuits. This brought a fundamental change in our neighbor and even our own relatives were jealous about me. What I got from that leady change my life and she became my angel of salvation. Everyone decides to allow their daughter to study, for sure to have the oil and biscuits given by ISAF to schoolgirls.

Well now I had a new deal. If I want to go to school without facing any problem, then I must be always topper of my class to have more oil and biscuits then others so no one could say that my expenses are more then ISAF’s assistance.

That is how I fight to learn and race to continue for a decade with lots of ups and downs. Finally, I graduated as a topper with the highest score of (98.43) and never let my dad down.  

If I get enough love then I can share chapter two. 

thank you so much
