    That’s a really inspiring story :). We all have choices in life. It’s what we make of it which decides the way our life goes. While some of us sit all day sulking and crying out on the lack of opportunities to do anything big, there are others like Esther who make the most of what they have got to achieve what millions others don’t despite having all the means.

  2. wow that’s a beautiful heart warming story. I love reading these inspiring stories of people with such determination and strength to change their lives. Thank you for sharing 🙂

    I love this story and totally admire Esther! We don’t always live in the best of circumstances, and she lives in some of the worst, but she makes the choice to have hope and determination anyway. Great story!

  4. So very true. I think back to the many choices I have made in my life and the roads I did not travel. Many of them could have led me down a dark dark path. I am thankful that I made a few good choices!

    Really inspiring story, Parul. There are many people around us battling tough times and finding the right path for them. It is just that we fail to recognize them. I am glad that you shared Esther’s story here. The strength and hope it gives to others is incredible!

  6. Esther’s story is inspirational because she had hope inspite of the adversaries and she had the courage to dream and make choices accordingly.
    All of us face difficulties from time to time though they may not be on the same lines as what Esther faced. Many a times we find ourselves faced against a wall with no straight way to march upon and then we retract, adjust to the situations, make changes to our original choices and we move left, right or even step back a little. And in that moment we are courageous.

    Making the right choice has too much importance these days.. And whenever people speak of making a choice, only one sentence from the lips of Albus Dumbledore pops up in my mind! 😀
    Amazing post, Parul! 🙂

  9. Stories like Esther’s humble me, Parul. Thanksf for sharing!

    I think inspiration can come in a flash, and make you choose a path that leads you to what you want. Esther made the right one. I hope she succeeds in what she aims to do. Thanks for sharing her story. 🙂

  11. What drive and dedication that young girl has. I would love to be able to follow her story and see how it goes. Reading (I read the other article you posted the link for also) about Esther makes me grateful for all the opportunities I have had in my life, and puts the struggles I have faced in better perspective. Thank you for sharing this awe inspiring story.

    People might say, some shoulders are burdened with many a responsibilities quite before time. Well, it is at the end, either u step up and do what you have to do to make yourself or drown in complaining. Such an inspirational story that hits home. Forces u to reminiscence where you have come from and where you are headed to. Thanks for sharing Parul 🙂 Keep up the good work!

    Another amazing post by you, you are an inspiration with the words you share, I feel blessed to have you join us at #Fridayreflections. This was an amazing story and makes me even more grateful for the life I was born in to

  15. Brilliant post. Yes, the choice that we make certainly is important. I have my own story and struggle as a just-18 kid, but I was determined not to let people control my life, not to let circumstances shatter my dreams and to make my own path to whatever goals I have in my mind. It was my choice, I did it.

    I recently watched a movie called The Good Lie, inspired by the experiences of some Sudanese refugees in the US. It shows the gruesome circumstances which thousands of Sudanese children escaped, the horrors of war and the real scare of starting a new life in a place far, far away. And imagine the plight of thousands and thousand who just couldn’t escape. A disturbing movie, but worth watching. Thanks. Parul for bringing to light the story of one more girl from Sudan. Where is the world going, sometimes one has to wonder?

    Beautiful post. It tells us that what we take for granted is someone’s far off dream. So, the least we can do is be grateful and teach our kids humility.

    What an inspiring story, Parul. Thanks for sharing. Stories like these make us reflect and view our own perceived problems in a different way. How wonderful that she found her source of inspiration in an unusual place!

    • As I was reading about Esther, I felt grateful. I also felt that the problems that I face on a day to day basis are nothing. Imagine, every day is a day survived safe and sound. I loved this girl and if she would read this comment – she should know she is wished the best in life.

    A lovely inspiring story and it made me sit back and think. The choices we make do shape the people we become. Thank you for sharing this story with us #FridayReflections

  20. Puts things in perspective, doesn’t it. Here I am complaining about not being able to get a damn FitbIt :/

  21. Sreesha Diva says:

    What an inspiring story! I admire people who have the determination to go beyond the boundaries life has set for them. It is also amazing that what fueled her decision at first was that she wanted her mother to be proud of her. That’s really touching and commendable.

    A story for inspiration Parul. Loved reading it. Wish I could do a lot more to support girls like Esther into making their own choice of life. Sure makes us grateful that we have been able to take an education and make the choices of life. Great post on an important theme:-)
