Yes, yes, yes, and yes! You have many strong skills, Anisa, and the more you focus, the more you learn, the more you write, the more they will grow. Very proud of you. You will find a way. Stacy
Beautiful Anisa! So inspiring! You can do it! Keep writing!
Dear Anisa, I am sure that you will find a way to be whatever you want to be! Maybe you be a poet, too! Abby
Anisa, Whatever you become, keep being yourself. It is clear you have so much to offer to the world. And please keep sharing your words with all of us. They are important!!
I love your line: “I want to study hard and find a way.”
I just wrote down a quote from the popular book *The Dressmaker of Khair Khana:* “Don’t worry, we will find a way,” Soraya Jan said to Malika. I added: “These are probably, really, the best words ever uttered.”
Keep going! You will find a way!
I admire how you have so many options for the future with so many interest, and how you are thinking about what you want to aspire when you’re older. Its very courageous that you want to go beyond the stereotypes and be someone one day, despite all the hate women/girls get for working and getting education. By your writing, I can tell that you have a lot of talents and strong points including maths, business, painting, music and business! When you sad ‘I want to study hard and find a way’ it made me happy to see how much you valued education, and it seems like you work hard and have never had anything handed to you before. Awesome work!
-Keep it up!
