Samia was 11 years old in 2009.
That was her age when she stop going to school.
Her parents could not afford to pay school fees for all of their children.
“I was getting ready for school as normal."
"Then my mother told me that I would not be going; only my brothers can go to school.”
Usually in poor countries, girls have less chance to attend school than boys because in some countries, boys’ education is the priority.
Can you imagine you can’t go to school because you are just a girl or a boy?
