Aqila is a young woman from Afghanistan who has benefited from Wedu's education funding (FISAs) thanks to your help. This is her story:
"Nothing is more challenging than being an Afghan but born and raised in Pakistan where you are still judged as a weak girl. Moreover, you are told to feel sorry for your social, emotional and financial condition. Having seen my parents and siblings working hard to make a better living in Pakistan since the day they had to leave Afghanistan and seek asylum in
Pakistan, I wanted to become the voice of the unheard to share real stories and unveil the truth. I realized that in order to find my voice, I need to first free myself.
My time at University of Central Asia helped me find my voice while graduating with a degree in Communications and Media. I applied to FISA to receive support for my last academic year’s tuition fees.
After graduating from UCA, I want to pursue my graduate studies from Cambridge and become an expert in the field of public policy which will help me to make a significant change in the world."
We want to send our deepest gratitude to you for supporting this effect and helping us by donating to the Sujata Baskota Honor Education Funding. Your contribution directly supports women like Aqila by allowing them to focus on their studies and follow their dreams to create positive social change. Thanks to you we have been able to raise a total of $6,323 in online donations to contribute towards financing for education, an amount that can provide financial support to more Rising Stars this year than ever before. Thank you again so much for your donation and we look forward to sending more exciting Rising Star updates and achievements in coming months.
Thank you for helping our Rising Stars keep rising!
