Zeinab is a 16-year-old girl living with her family in a mountain cave, and I am from Bamyan.
Zeinab, who has just entered the twelfth grade this year, has been away from school for seven months now due to the Taliban's obstruction.
"She has a fighting face," she says.
I will build myself in this cave
And I will never allow the prejudices and opinions of others to hinder my progress.
Zeinab walks long distances from the mountains to the city center every day and goes to English class.
Do you think life in a cave will be comfortable?
Definitely not! A strong and stubborn person can live in a mountain cave.
I endure all these hardships, and I will not let anyone hinder my progress, if today we are deprived of education! It doesn't mean that this is the end, or that I can't study, I will fight until I can get my rights and other women from this fake government.
I work hard every day to achieve my goals, even if everyone leaves me alone, I will continue, I have learned how to stand on my own two feet. Every day I continue to study with more hope and more strength, and I will never accept that this is the end.
I know that the religion of Islam has made the rights of men and women equal, both men and women have the right to study and work, but these false men who know nothing about Islam! They are not even literate! Therefore, I will never give up.
Every day I look down at the valley from above, at the end of the valley is the blue building, the school where we studied, from here I look at my school with all sadness, hoping for the day when the schools will open again.
