Safoora, who is now the only child of her parents, expressed that she had been studying diligently from the beginning. However, as the exams were about to commence, her brother fell ill.
She shared, “My brother was on a ventilator. His condition worsened after I had appeared for two papers. A day before my Mathematics paper, a subject in which I am weak, my brother passed away. I was not in a condition to attend the test, but my relatives convinced me to appear for the exam.”

Reflecting on her brother’s absence, Safoora stated, “I would have celebrated my success with my brother, but this is what Almighty has destined. I lost my only brother at such an early stage.”

“I have learned that one must remain courageous in all circumstances and maintain consistency and hard work, as these qualities are crucial for achieving any goal,” Safoora concluded. (KNO)
