A Saudi woman achieved her dream of completing graduation from the college. The more interesting thing is the woman, Saleha Assiri was able to graduate along with daughter Maram from the same university.
Assiri wasn’t able to complete her education before she got married and now she graduated in media and communications from the King Khalid University and her daughter Maram graduated in business.
“I fought all odds to resume my education and accomplished my mission to get a degree from the college. Now I am optimistic to find a job to support my family”, Assiri told in an interview with Al Arabiya.
“I’ve always loved learning and education but I wasn’t able to finish my high school education because I got married early and shifted to the eastern region, and after my children were born it becomes even more difficult for me to resume my education”, she added.
She further said that the day she got admission into the college was like a feast for her, but sadly her mother died last year and didn’t get a chance to see her graduate. Her children and friends always supported her by taking care of her home and her education.
