In today’s testing times, when many of us are fighting against the unforeseen circumstances and losing confidence in our future, here is a much-needed story of undying determination and persistence that we all need.
Here’s the inspiring story of an 18-year-old Fazia, who has made us believe that anyone can realize their dreams. Fighting against her extreme life circumstances, Fazia has scored 96% in her Class 12th Board Exam.
What makes ‘HER’ our hero is how she defeated life challenges at every step of her life without breaking down. Though Fazia wasn’t born with any kind of privilege, yet she made sure that she strives hard to create a life of her dream for herself and her family.
Daughter of a single mother, who is also a cancer survivor, Faiza’s life struggle has been anything but easy. Here’s a quick glimpse of her life that makes her achievements far more valuable.
Life In A Tiny 60 sq ft. Room In A Slum
Fazia lives in a tiny room of 60/70 sq ft with her mother, brother, and three sisters in JJ Cluster in Delhi’s slum area – Seelampur. She hardly had any personal space for herself to study. The life in a slum wasn’t easy at all. While talking to ANI, she also said that because they live in a slum there’s plenty of noise and hustle-bustle that goes on through the day. This led to her only being able to study at night when things were relatively quieter. But in midst of distractions, she never lost her focus. And, hence made her family proud by scoring 96% in her Class 12th Board Exam.
Hardship Of Managing Household Responsibilities With Studies
While many kids of her age were busy studying, Fazia had to worry about her family’s survival. Before her board examinations, Fazia had to get up early in the morning to take care of household chores as well as her stitching job which helps her earn some money – Rs 2,000 to Rs 2,500 monthly – for the family.
Fazia told ANI that it was hard for her to manage her household duties and studies together. But her result shows how she ensured that her life challenges did not become obstacles in her path to success. Her exceptional performance in her board exams is just a reflection of her determination and dedication.

With the given financial constraints, she had limited chances to seek help from any tuition or teacher. But, thankfully after finding out about Fazia’s struggle, an NGO called Asha Society came forward to help. They provided her with study materials like sample papers. The organization also conducted mock tests and provided her with an environment that helped her to study and score so well in her exams.
As per ANI, Fazia’s mother is a cancer survivor and both she and her late husband always wanted their kids to study and be successful in life.
Fazia has dreams of becoming a Geography teacher and visiting many places throughout her life. Though she has never stepped outside of northwest Delhi, Fazia dreams of visiting Sikkim the most.
At IFORHER, we are in awe of Fazia and her determination to fight back. Her inspiring story is a great example of how our life circumstances cannot stop us from following our dreams. How she struggled at every step of her life but never gave up is a reminder that anyone can make their dreams come true, if they follow them with burning passion!
