#WomenWhoInspire: Afghani Woman Writes An Exam While She Nurses Her Baby

When I think of exams, I can only remember being extremely stressed out, trying to remember what I'd studied the night before. While studying was a chore for most of us, it's quite a different story for Jahan Taab. The 25-year-old from Daikundi, Afghanistan, took an university exam as she nursed her two-month-old.

Married to a farmer, Jahan is a young mother of three children. Jahan traveled for six hours to Nilli City for an entrance exam called Kankor. It's the test necessary to get into the national public university.

Moved by a crosslegged mother who was diligently giving the exam as she nursed and coddled her baby, the professor decided to share the pictures on Twitter.


Her perseverance moved thousands of people online, making her a role model for both, men and women. According to reports, she has passed her exam with a bang but might not be able to afford higher education. It's heartwarming to see the overwhelming support she's gathered for her cause.

We can only hope that Jahan is able to pursue her higher studies and live up to her greatest potential.

In the meantime, we hope this story gave you a #rolemodel for the day.
