Narges from Sorya High School
Every year, HTAC provides educational support for about 3,000 Afghan girls, and for every one of them there is a personal story of a girl striving to complete her education, gaining marketable skills and hoping to make a better life for herself.
Narges, an incredibly bright, hardworking student at Sorya Girls High School in Kabul, is part of a new generation of Afghan girls who is destined to make a difference for her country with our help. Her story inspires all of us at HTAC to work hard and continue giving Afghan children opportunities to succeed. Narges shares her story:
"First, I want to thank the HTAC organization that helps Afghan children. My name is Narges from Ghazni Province and a student of Sorya Girls School. I always put my full effort into everything I do. I am enthusiastic, friendly and cooperative, both in and out of school, but I still try to improve myself more."
"Ever since I was little, there have been two careers that have sparked my interest and that I wanted to pursue. My first choice is to become a teacher. Many of the teachers I've had in the past have made it clear that their job is rewarding and interesting. My one goal in my life is to find something that I weould love to do for the rest of my life and stick with it and that would definitely be accomplished if I went into the education field. I love working with people and can absolutely see myself as being a teacher."
"The second career I would consider is nursing, which I got from my aunt who attended Illinois State University in America. She enjoyed her courses and loves her nursing job today. We've always been really close and she's inspired me to pursue my education beyond high school and gain a profession where I can truly help others in need, such as nursing. She is the one person in my family whom I have a lot in common with, and it would mean so much to me if I could follow in her footsteps."
HTAC is proud to be a continuing partner with schools such as Sorya Girls High School in providing enriched courses and giving girls like Narges a chance to dream and achieve their goals.
