Niveen, a resilient 26-year-old single mother raising her 4-year-old daughter, found herself at a crossroads. Having married young and unable to finish her high school education, she faced the daunting challenge of providing for herself and her child after deciding to divorce her husband due to their difficult circumstances.
Despite opposition from her family, who questioned how she would support her daughter alone, Niveen remained determined. She bravely pursued her decision to divorce and set out to find opportunities to better her situation.
One day, while scrolling through her Facebook feed, Niveen stumbled upon a post from Luminus advertising scholarships funded by the Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair Refugee Education Fund. The opportunity ignited a spark within her as she had always harbored a passion for fashion design. Without hesitation, she applied and was accepted into a training program in fashion design.

As she delved into her studies, Niveen felt her life transforming. She saw new possibilities opening up before her. “Now, I can create my daughter’s own clothing designs and sew them,” she exclaimed with pride. Not only did she gain newfound skills, but she also shattered stereotypes within her family. “My parents are so proud of me, and I’ve changed their whole perspective on single mothers and their capabilities,” she reflected.
Emboldened by her success, Niveen secured a position with a clothing factory, where she now works tirelessly to support her daughter’s education.
