With three days to go, we wanted to make the most of the trip to Nishapour. That was the destination of our two hour journey, and in order to spend the majority of the day in Nishapour, we had to wake up at 7AM, earlier than usual.

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.
