Meet 18 year old Huda, from Saida, Lebanon


“My name is Huda, I’m 18 and I’m from Saida. I live with my mum, my four sisters and my four brothers. I have been studying at Al Rahma Vocational  Centre for 5 years. My 16 year-old sister has just enrolled at the centre. My favourite subject is accounting because I feel like I know everything about mathematics.

I like everything in the centre: my friends, my teachers and all the subjects we study. I always see my friends after school, we really like hanging out together. My hobbies are painting and dancing.

I would like to be an accountant in the future.”
