“I’m not like the other girls here.
My thoughts are different from theirs. I’m willing to push the boundaries more. That’s because I was lucky to receive an education. But it’s hard to try and bring change when it’s just me. If everyone was educated here, maybe they would think like me and we could bring change together.”
I’ve spent my days jumping into more in-depth research on the Rohingya culture. I’m especially interested in learning more about the girls here.
Today I met a girl unlike any other Rohingya girl I’ve known in the camps. Confident, articulate, a go-getter. She’s ok with ruffling a few feathers — in fact, she prefers it. She told me of her dreams to change the world — starting with a curriculum she has already written and published.
I’ve stepped into the world of an educated Rohingya girl — and it truly is beautiful.
