Syrian Working Girl

Best Arab photo for 2007.
Taken by Wasim Khair Beik of Sana (Syrian Arab News Agency).

7 year old girl doing her homework while selling candy on the sidewalk in Damascus. Enough said. Via [Al Raiya newspaper, Qatar]


  • It's a priceless photo. Even though my heart sank when I saw it at first, I realized within moments how much she is BETTER than us all. Despite her situation she is still adamant on finishing her studies and duties, at such a young and tender age when she should be playing.

    The whole nation should be proud of her and her will to survive.

    Thanks for sharing :)

  • Truly touching and most beautiful picture.

    A few years down the road, I pray with all my heart, that this Amazing Girl shows the light to others that can only dream of success!

    Thanks from me too for sharing :)

  • Great photo!

    I will remember next time when I am whining about the 'inconveniences' of life that I am (perhaps undeservedly) more fortunate than others.

    Thanks for posting Mory!
