“Where there’s a will, there’s a way” and this phrase is proved true by an Afghan girl!
Let’s read about this 25-year old, Afghan girl, Jahantab Ahmadi, a farmer from Afghanistan and her pictures are winning hearts over the internet with her enthusiasm and zeal to make her dreams come true.
In a particular pic which is going viral and has struck a chord with millions, is showing that she has been participating in a university entrance exam, at the same time, she is also holding her two-month-old baby in her arms.
A professor at Nasir Khusraw private university actually clicks these pictures and shared the same on his Facebook account and those went viral.
As per a report filed by CNN, Jahantab, she is a mother of three kids, she belongs from a remote farming village in Daikundi province, is a dream to become a doctor.
“I don’t want to be deprived of my studies. I want to work outside the house. I want to become a doctor, someone who serves women in my community or society.”
Ahmadi reportedly was at first sitting at a desk, but eventually, she moves to the ground as her baby, Khizran, wasn’t comfortable in her lap, when she was at the desk.
Her enthusiasm to appear for the exam was such that she actually covers a difficult journey in order to reach her destination at the center in the provincial capital, Nili.
It reportedly took her two hours on foot through hills and nine hours in public transport on a road.
Ahmadi actually managed to complete her higher school education after her marriage and she got married at the age of 18, apart from breaking the stereotypes she also passed the exam with filling colors.
“My life goal was to get admitted into university but due to our poor economic situation and poverty, I could not afford to study for three or four years. I don’t want to be left behind.”

These women have but two choices: submit or fight. The fighters are unfathomable courageous, but the ones that submit, offten out of nescesity or social pressure, also need support.

Education shouldn’t be a fight, it should be a right.

Amazed to see this effort, dedication and strong determination, the Afghan women’s rights activist Zahra Yagana offered her to visit Kabul for further study.
On the other side, an online GoFundMe campaign unveiled and launched by the Afghan Youth Association is shows their kindness and helping her to pay university fees and has managed to raise over $14,000.
Bearing in mind Afghanistan’s literacy rate is reportedly the lowest in this whole globe and even lesser for women, and in that time when we can see the zeal for study in this Afghan girl, we can definitely now agree with it that this is the major positive sign.
