Safaa

Student, Girls Centre Shatila

At the Alsama Centre I feel understood.

Safaa was born in 2003 in Damascus. She came to Shatila with her parents, her twin sister and younger brother in 2013 after their home was destroyed by bombs. Her parents managed eventually to enroll her into a school to continue her education. She finished 9thgrade in the summer of 2019. However, despite her excellent grades she has not been able to obtain a place in a secondary school. Meike and Kadria are trying everything they can to help complete her school education. Safaa speaks beautiful English. She is currently reading the Naughts & Crosses series by Melanie Blackburn. Safaa yearns to study at university.
