I am Ananya Arun. I am a 12-year-old who loves to go to school. I live in Muscat, Oman. I am an Indian.
I have been inspired by you since I was 7. I’m sure I would have heard of you before but, I guess I was too small to understand. As soon as I came to know a little about you I went to my mom and she told me all about you. As I got older I was fascinated by you more than I ever was. One day my mom asked, “what would you do if the government banned the girls from going to school and said they’ll kill you if you stepped out fo the house?” I replied “I love school and I rather get up and fight for my rights than sit at home doing nothing. I would not have been able to believe that my brother would get to go to school even though our parents raised us as equal.” Whatever the situation I’d make sure I won’t lose hope and faith. I would encourage the other girls to do the same just like you did.
Your dairy was broadcasted to the world and it informed people of the state of Mingora, Pakistan. I wish my little letter reaches you the same way and maybe you can come to Oman and visit our schools. I know you’ll love it here. We have a beautiful coastline, marvellous mosques and many more.
Lots of love
