Nour, 14 and her older sister Ghina, 16, from Damascus, Syria
When sisters Nour and Ghina were separated while leaving Syria, they feared they might never see each other again. They had to leave because their home became a war zone, “I was happy in Syria, I had my friends, my school… life was good. Then the war began and everything changed,” Nour, the younger sister said.
For the last three years they’ve been living in Jordan’s Azraq Refugee Camp, finding strength in each other during the difficult times, “I love my sister because she’s always someone positive to be around,” Ghina said.
They share the same dream, “our biggest dream is to do well in school and stay at the top of our classes.” While Nour wants to be an electrical engineer, Ghina would like to travel the world and experience different cultures.
Although the future of Syria is uncertain, they’re determined that fear will not hold them back, “we dream to be able to continue to dream,” Ghina said.
