Rim applied for a scholarship for the second year of her studies. She expects to graduate this September as her grades have always been excellent.

fell near where she lives, and she did not feel safe anymore.

Rim’s mother joins the conversation and says that although her husband is a teacher and she herself has a part time job, it is difficult to make both ends meet with 5 children, all of them students or about to become one.
