Success stories are a living proof that the path to success has never been paved with roses, but rather filled with obstacles and pitfalls that can only be overcome with the determination and perseverance that are born within individuals as a result of the challenges that push them to complete their journey and achieve their goals.
The Power of Determination: Fatima’s Success Story in Returning to Education
“Fatima Spagh,” a woman from Idlib, decided to become a symbol of determination for success by overcoming the obstacles that kept her away from education for many years. With stronger determination, she returned to the right path among her high-achieving peers.
Fatima took a ten-year break from education, focusing on raising her children and taking care of her home. However, she always felt a deep longing whenever the results of the secondary school certificate were announced. She dreamed of having her name among the successful, despite her absence from school.
Finally, Fatima made up her mind and firmly resolved, after hearing about the Masarat Initiative, to return to education, obtain the secondary school certificate, and enter university. With the determination of a dedicated student, the support of caring family members, and the assistance of the exceptional initiative, Fatima succeeded in achieving her goal. She obtained the certificate and enrolled in the Faculty of Arts, majoring in English language. Thus, she elevated herself to the ranks of productive individuals who play a role in building society.
