About Me: 

I am a student at Asian University for Women (AUW). I took a long journey to get the place that I am now, and to be the person that I am now. I am happy that I am taking this journey because I have precious goals. I try my best to achieve them and I will never blame the destiny. I know I it will not be easy to continue this journey, no matter. I know I may fail, no matter. I know one day I will die, no matter. What matter is that I am alive and have beautiful dreams. I will help others to be happy. I wil prove to all those people who thought a woman can do nothing other than cooking and cleaning, that they are wrong.
I like to build libraries in Afghanistan.
I like to work in an orphaanage in my country and make it's children the happiest people on the earth.
I am happy that every day in my journey, I find more friends. I hope I will find lots of friends here at World Pulse too.
