Nasima Razmyar shares the image with which she stops self-critical thoughts: “I have learned to speak to myself beautifully”

Sometimes when watching at night or walking down the aisles of a town hall, Nasima Razmyar gets into a contradictory feeling: How is it possible that she is promoting education here in Finland when things are so bad in her native Afghanistan?

– The situation of women and girls in particular is worrying. My own life has been elsewhere, and there are no more relatives in Afghanistan. However, the country needs all possible help. I don’t know what it’s going to be like for me, but I feel a compelling need to even do something.
