Israa – 2015 HE scholarship student

Israa’s messages over the months form a vivid account of her experiences through her final COVID-disrupted semester

“Luckily I returned home a day before the state of emergency was declared. The graduation situation is still unclear and there is no clear timeline of the semester, everyone thought that it’s just a matter of a month but things aren’t going well , that’s why no one can take proper decision. It’s really frustrating how things went that way… Best wishes” April 2020
