Basira's story

Basira is a first-year student at the American University of Central Asia (AUCA), department of Anthropology. Below is her story.

“The choice of profession is an important choice in one’s life. Because whatever activity people do in their life must bring them joy, satisfaction, and advantage. One has to know that our profession must give us a result that will contribute to the development of our society.

"The choice of a university is, therefore, important too. The American University of Central Asia is the best university that can give me a quality education and, most importantly, here I will learn using my knowledge.

"Anthropology is the field of my choice. Anthropology is a profession that will open lots of new perspectives and opportunities to me, as well as achieving my goals. My main goal is to contribute to the development of my country.

"AUCA also gives an opportunity to cover tuition fees of the students, which is a Kiva loan. I have limited resources to cover my tuition. Therefore, I am applying for a Kiva loan, so that I could pay for my higher education here at AUCA.”
