Exams are not important any more

When I was at first grade, the important things in my life were exams. At first there was no governmental schools in my village. We had been going to the masque for studying Islamic subjects. In the masque there was (until now they are) religious weell-learned man who was supposed to teach us in exchange that Our parents had been paying them money or wheat.
In masque-school I was very talented and every day I was being encouraged by my teacher who we called him (mullah).
Then after many years studying Islamic subjects in masques,  the first governmental school got opened to the girls and boys.
My school period, the road I was to walk the backpack I have to back and the days I had to spend are still in my mind well-lighted.
I was at the first position in my class from first grade to 9th.
Then I left my village by coming to kabul city to study engineering in one of the governmental institutes by the name of Afghan Institute of Technology or (AIT).
Before coming to AIT, the exams were my nightmares, Before the starting of exams I would do everything to take the first position. But nowadays that I am an student of 14th grade, there is no fear of exams in my mind. I don’t know what have happened to me, maybe it is because of my experiences during this 14 years or because of the Afghanistan’s educational system which I think is getting old.
Tonight is exam’s night but I am very relax in my bed with a phone in my hand. No matters what will happen. I have to say that surprisingly i scored 95% in the last semester. Now do you think I am about to getting mad? or something else?
Oh I should mention that if you like or want to know more about me, please visit my Facebook account.

Damaged goods

In a society that the #atonement (diiah) of a #woman is equal to the atonement of a man’s testicle. the word to describe those girls or women who have been raped in our #society and are still alive or survived, is “Damaged goods”.
—–
The #first_lady of #US will launch a trip to the Middle East. To address in the jordanian schools and attending at global education conference in Qatar.
She is well known for her efforts in the area of education and human rights.
—-
her decoded speeches about her trip.
“I will be visiting girls at a school in Jordan -one of many schools in that country educating both jordanian and children whose families fled the conflict in Syria- to highlight the power of investment in girls’ education.
I also will be speaking at a global education conference in Qatar. I will be urging countries to investigating in girls’ education and challenge laws and practices that silence women and brutualize them.
#Laws that forced child to #marriage, laws that allow martial rape and disadvantage women in work place.
We should never have to accept our girls having their bodies mutilated or being #married off to grown men as teenager.
Scholars, bathrooms and safe transportation will only go so far if societies fail to punish rapists and continue to reject survivors of rape as 《#damaged_goods》.
As a first lady, a mother and a human being I can not walk away from these girls and I plan to keep raising my voice on their behalf for the rest of my life”.
