The Will to Succeed

A young woman telling her story from Zaatari camp, after she had failed her studies back home in Syria. Noor is at the beginning of her life, and she came with her parents to Zaatari camp. She had stopped her education when she was in 9th grade, and she is 23 years old now. She started attending awareness and training sessions held in the camp for women, and she quickly stood out for her application of the tasks in a timely and precise manner. After the sessions she applied for a position with an organization within the camp who was looking for talented Syrians, and she was accepted and appointed for a 3 month probation period. As a result of her good work she was appointed permanently and earns some money. Noor now feels positive and an active member of her community; this brings her joy despite the situation around her and being a refugee.
