我现年20岁。我出生时,我的国家叫阿富汗斯坦伊斯兰共和国。[1] 就在几周前,我的祖国被塔利班占领。在我的祖国,女孩们曾经可以勇敢地追寻自己的梦想,没有实现梦想的女孩也许最后会抱憾离世。我就是那个女孩,勇于追逐梦想,并立志在有生之年实现梦想。

我的学习之路从学习技术开始。在阿富汗,像我这种生在一个中产阶级的家庭的孩子,能上学是一个了不起的事情,特别还因为我是一个女生。在我小的时候,上大学,有工作对我来说就是一个遥远的梦。想要实现梦想就需要逆着社会潮流和人们的思想,但这并非易事。所以我在学校拼命学习,拿到最高分,向我的家人证明我还是大有作为的。技术专业一直是属于男生的专业,这都是我攻读技术专业的原因。我成为了班级第一。我的目标一直是学习新事物,让我的家人过上该有的生活。

过去的半个月内 [2],塔利班控制了阿富汗。塔利班袭击了阿富汗后,国家随之沦陷。我的人生也从天堂跌倒了谷底。在此之前,我和家人过着美好的生活,我在国内最好的大学里攻读计算机专业。直到现在,我还希望这是一场可怕的噩梦,我醒来后,这一切都会结束。但是,我认为我应该接受现实。我的梦想、我的家人就是那黑暗里的一缕阳光。我曾经听别人讲过,人生中最苦难的事情就是死亡。但是,我现在意识到了,孤独绝望地或者比死亡还要可怕。人生中最痛苦的事情莫过于活在这世上,因为自己爱的人而假装幸福。

我热爱我的梦想,热爱希望,热爱14年奋斗的自己,我热爱一切。我就像这有翅膀无法飞翔,被困在牢笼里的鸟儿。我的梦想就是攻读计算机学专业,我的目标一直是学习新事物。

我的人生里唯一的那束光就是我的家人。能够拥有一个思想开明又全力支持我实现梦想的家庭是何等的幸运。我会用知识的力量努力冲破束缚,如果我成功做到了,我会为其他女孩创造出实现梦想的机会。我想说,我仍然是那个为了追梦而不惜一切的女孩。

黑暗固然可怕,但黑夜中的星星足够照亮未来的人生。

Share your story

Every story we share is another perspective on a complex topic like migration, gender and sexuality or liberation. We believe that these personal stories are important to better understand what's going on in our globalised society - and to better understand each other. That's because we are convinced that the more we understand about each other, the easier it will be for us to really talk to one another, to get closer - and to maybe find solutions for the issues that affect us all.

Tahmina

I'm 20 years old and I live in Kabul, Afghanistan. I was a computer science student in one of the top universities in my country. Moreover, my biggest dream is to study computer science and to work in the field of technology, plus I want to create opportunities for girls like me. Finally, I have never travelled, so I really would like to travel the world once in my life.

Due to safety concerns, Tahmina is choosing not to publish her full name or picture.

Get involved

At Correspondents of the World, we want to contribute to a better understanding of one another in a world that seems to get smaller by the day - but somehow neglects to bring people closer together as well. We think that one of the most frequent reasons for misunderstanding and unnecessarily heated debates is that we don't really understand how each of us is affected differently by global issues.

Our aim is to change that with every personal story we share.

Community Worldwide

Correspondents of the World is not just this website, but also a great community of people from all over the world. While face-to-face meetings are difficult at the moment, our Facebook Community Group is THE place to be to meet other people invested in Correspondents of the World. We are currently running a series of online-tea talks to get to know each other better.

EXPLORE TOPIC Liberation

Global Issues Through Local Eyes

We are Correspondents of the World, an online platform where people from all over the world share their personal stories in relation to global development. We try to collect stories from people of all ages and genders, people with different social and religious backgrounds and people with all kinds of political opinions in order to get a fuller picture of what is going on behind the big news.

Our Correspondents

At Correspondents of the World we invite everyone to share their own story. This means we don't have professional writers or skilled interviewers. We believe that this approach offers a whole new perspective on topics we normally only read about in the news - if at all. If you would like to share your story, you can find more info here.

Our Editors

We acknowledge that the stories we collect will necessarily be biased. But so is news. Believing in the power of the narrative, our growing team of awesome editors helps correspondents to make sure that their story is strictly about their personal experience - and let that speak for itself.

View Our Full Vision & Mission Statement

Topics

We believe in quality over quantity. To give ourselves a focus, we started out to collect personal stories that relate to our correspondents' experiences with six different global topics. However, these topics were selected to increase the likelihood that the stories of different correspondents will cover the same issues and therefore illuminate these issues from different perspectives - and not to exclude any stories. If you have a personal story relating to a global issue that's not covered by our topics, please still reach out to us! We definitely have some blind spots and are happy to revise our focus and introduce new topics at any point in time. 

Environment

Discussions about the environment often center on grim, impersonal figures. Among the numbers and warnings, it is easy to forget that all of these statistics actually also affect us - in very different ways. We believe that in order to understand the immensity of environmental topics and global climate change, we need the personal stories of our correspondents.

Gender and Sexuality

Gender is the assumption of a "normal". Unmet expectations of what is normal are a world-wide cause for violence. We hope that the stories of our correspondents will help us to better understand the effects of global developments related to gender and sexuality, and to reveal outdated concepts that have been reinforced for centuries.

Migration

Our correspondents write about migration because it is a deeply personal topic that is often dehumanized. People quickly become foreigners, refugees - a "they". But: we have always been migrating, and we always will. For millions of different reasons. By sharing personal stories about migration, we hope to re-humanize this global topic.

Liberation

We want to support the demand for justice by spotlighting the personal stories of people who seek liberation in all its different forms. Our correspondents share their individual experiences in creating equality. We hope that for some this will be an encouragement to continue their own struggle against inequality and oppression - and for some an encouragement to get involved.

Education

Education is the newest addition to our themes. We believe that education, not only formal but also informal, is one of the core aspects of just and equal society as well as social change. Our correspondents share their experiences and confrontations about educational inequalities, accessibility issues and influence of societal norms and structures. 

Corona Virus

2020 is a year different from others before - not least because of the Corona pandemic. The worldwide spread of a highly contagious virus is something that affects all of us in very different ways. To get a better picture of how the pandemic's plethora of explicit and implicit consequences influences our everyday life, we share lockdown stories from correspondents all over the world.

Growing Fast

Although we started just over a year ago, Correspondents of the World has a quickly growing community of correspondents - and a dedicated team of editors, translators and country managers.
