To encourage all you lovely people to join the Skateistan Drive this week, here's the story of one of their girl skaters, Faranas, sharing her goals, dreams and current life situation.

The day in the life of Skateistan student Faranas, who dreams of being a doctor or a teacher and escaping the cycle of poverty through education.

This video was made as part of an education exchange with youth in 12 countries around the world, giving Skateistan youth an opportunity to share their perspectives on life in Afghanistan.
