3 weeks away from home was quite a challenging thought at first as I'd never stayed away from my family for so long; but it was exciting!
We were picked up from Imam Khomeini Airport at dawn by our mentors and driven to Qum. Our stay at Jamia-tuz-Zahra was marvellous. It was a home away from home. The mentors were amazing; they listened and advised as older sisters do.
The classes were very motivating; a kind of encouragement to look at the brighter side of life and knowledge that will last a lifetime.
