What did we learn from her story?

Wanting to get somewhere is common, reaching there is another story. The struggle has to be there, it has to be real. You will see that most people around you have goals and dreams. Not many, however, are working for their dreams.

Those who hold on to their commitments and use every bit of the strength they can, are likely to succeed. Qaswa, being a girl, had a lot more hurdles to face. She did it, so can you.
