My Story:

Yasaman is a polite, calm, hardworking, and talented student from Maragheh, Iran. She is 11 years old and has a very high GPA. She lives with her mother and younger brother in a small room in her grandmother’s house. Her father was a day laborer prior to becoming addicted to drugs. To support his addiction, Yasaman’s father sold the family’s furniture and appliances. He also harassed Yasaman, her brother, and mother. They were having a very difficult time until Yasaman’s mother was able to divorce her father. Her mother now works in a low wage job in a restaurant. They are struggling as her income is not sufficient to meet their basic needs. Yasaman needs your support to be able to continue her education.
