Hello, everyone!

My name is Zahra. I am from Somalia and now I'm study my master degree in the University of Selangor, malaysia!

I loved to research, focusing on public health issues, when I was a student in Somalia.

Even though, I am still young (22 years old) I don’t want to stop to reach my dream and helping to improve our world to became better! I want to continue my PhD research about cancer after I graduate from my master degree this November.

Student of biomedical health research

When I was university student in Somalia, I was interested about health issues. I took a fast degree that had about 84 courses so I manage to graduate faster.

Then, in 2017, I moved to Malaysia to start my master degree in the University of Selangor. I really want to help people with my research. Currently I am working on my thesis about biomedical health research and dengue fever. I wish my research really can help others in the future.

The research will be useful for our generation

As I explained, I joined a fast degree when I was in my country. Beside that, I often try to do different activities as a volunteer, focusing on public health issues and especially sanitary stuff.

I used to teach at public schools or some communities in Somalia with my team of 5-6 people. I think it was one of my meaningful days as I could help other people to understand the importance of health and I'm really glad for ever did it.

This is why I decided to study life science and biomedical health. My objective is to be able to help more people, since dengue fever is one a serious health issue that happens very frequently in countries like mine.

Going through financial problems

My family is a big family. I lost my sister when she was 7 years old. Now I have 3 sisters and 4 brothers. My mother and my father are also doing fine now, even though my father is suffering diabetes since 15 years ago. It must be hard for them to take care of their 9 children

For now, I don't want to burden him with my future plan to continue my PhD. Beside his age, and that he's really tired, I want to make him proud and ease his worry.

But as you know that PhD cost is not that cheap. I cannot afford it only by myself, but I don’t want to burden my parents with more expenses, that's why I'm also asking for your support.

Details on needed funds

I planned to enroll the university of Auckland at New Zeland or the university of British Columbia at Canada. I will study about 2 years and do my research about cancer there. For a year, it will spend about $6.000 to pay the university fee. But for now, i would like to raise $2.000 that will help me to be closer to my dream.


I will graduate from my master program at November of this year. Many people says that I am young and I need to take some free time and take a rest. But I don’t want it, I am not gonna stop. Besides I really love to research, I want to do my best by helping people using the result of my research. In the future, I hope I can keep studying my PhD after I finish my master degree.

It will be good if i can get any scholarship, but it is not as easy as you think. I tried to apply several times but I didn't get any response yet, that's why I'm trying to raise some funds, wishing everyone can support my dream!

Thank you so much everyone for helping me to achieve my dream!
