Description : Sama shares how the earthquake disrupted her studies, cutting a school year she was eager to complete. She desires to return to the classroom to pick up her studies where they left off and to attend the exams, as she dreams of becoming a lawyer. She also expresses her passion for sports.

The little girl recalls the bond she has with her friend Sameera, with who she was used to share meals and moments together.

"I miss my friend Sameera a lot. We used to play, eat, and share everything together." Sama says.

Sama’s mother discusses the long and costly journey to school, that requires financial resources that are currently beyond their reach.
