I am 19 years old, and I grew up and lived in Yemen, Life used to be normal for me for some period of time, with all the ups and down, it was a normal life, I was the top of my class and the oldest of my siblings.
I got a scholarship to finish my high school education in one of the best high schools in Yemen, and graduated from there with all A+, everything was going right and as planned,
War started...and everything got messed up, all the opportunities that I could have to continue my education were gone, embassies were closed, scholarship programs excluded Yemen from their lists, and that almost meant the end.
We used to go in lines to get water,
electricity too was cut, and the photo below shows how much we suffered
no jobs, no schools or university, nothing to be called "Life". Till I got an opportunity to study in Turkey, a scholarship that meant a lot at that hard time.
I got so much help getting traveling expenses and preparing for the travel and never will I forget the people who helped me then.
I traveled, I studied one year of electrical and electronic engineering but, again,
Turkey passed through some hard times that lead to the closing of my university and in just a blink of an eye I lost everything.
I lost my university, my accommodation, my financial aid and had nothing to depend on except friends help and so many debts.
I had to quit university for this year hoping that I might get another chance, my family, as you can guess, can not afford it, and I can not just quit and go back to Yemen since the war is still getting worse, and I can not have a real job to finance myself since it is illegal for students to work in Turkey...
